Top names from the British stage are coming together on 26 February at the Theatre Royal Haymarket to help raise funds for the UN refugee agency (UNHCR).
With work from Richard Bean, David Edgar, Phil Porter and more, Moving Stories will see a host of stars perform in aid of the current overwhelming global refugee crisis - the largest since the Second World War.
The afternoon will be hosted by Mel Giedroyc (The Great British Bake Off and Let It Shine) and will include performances from James Bolam (New Tricks, The Likely Lads), Rufus Hound (One Man, Two Guvnors, Celebrity Juice), Anna Jane Casey (Billy Elliot, Spamalot), Natalie Casey (Hollyoaks, Two Pints of Lager and A Packet of Crisps) and Denise Gough (People, Places, Things).
Also performing are Edward Bennett and Lisa Dillon who are currently starring in Love’s Labour’s Lost & Much Ado About Nothing.
Since its creation in 1950, UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, has been providing essential protection and support to the millions of people around the world who have been forced to flee their homes because of conflict, persecution or violence.
Over the last six decades, UNHCR has been on the ground fulfilling its mandate to safeguard the rights and wellbeing of refugees, ensuring that those who cannot seek protection from their own country can exercise the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another.
Today, an unprecedented 59.5 million people are displaced around the world - of whom more than half are children.
These are people whose lives have been shaped by war, fear and loss, but for whom UNHCR works hard to provide life-saving assistance, and crucially, hope for a better future.
