Kevin Spacey, Hollywood actor, director and artistic director of the Old Vic theatre, will share highlights from his life in a special 'Audience with' event to support Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, at London's Criterion Theatre on Sunday 3 October.
 
Kevin will be interviewed by Melvyn Bragg and the intimate ambience of the Criterion Theatre means the audience can put their own questions directly to Kevin during the evening.

The event follows the huge success of 'A Special Audience' evenings with Mel Brooks, Michael Palin and Stephen Fry, which have raised over £130,000 for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.
 
Alastair Campbell and Ed Victor will host the event. Alastair became involved with Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research because his best friend John Merritt died of leukaemia, then John's daughter Ellie died of the same disease.

Ed Victor, who created the "Special Audience" idea for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research has survived leukaemia, though still undergoes regular treatment and has been very open about the fact that he owes his life to research.
 
Director of Fundraising Kate White says: "We're so pleased to have the support of Kevin Spacey for this year's event. Our 'Audience With' events are extremely popular so we recommend booking early. Please come along for a great night out and help us beat blood cancers."
 
'A Special Audience With Kevin Spacey' will take place at the Criterion Theatre on Sunday 3 October at 8pm. There are a limited number of tickets including an exclusive champagne reception hosted by Alastair and Ed from 6.30pm available for £120 each.
