About An Afternoon with Dame Judi Dench

Like you, Dame Judi Dench loves The Mill at Sonning, and she wants to ensure it survives this difficult time. I emailed her to ask if she would consider appearing, and she came straight back with a resounding YES!

So, on a Sunday matinee in late July, in ‘An Afternoon with Dame Judi Dench’, she will talk about her life and work to a very select audience. Simon Williams will be her host and the ‘Graham Norton’ for the afternoon. She & I want to raise as much money for The Mill as possible, and so the tickets will be £500 each.

They will include a 3 course a la carte lunch with a bottle of wine from our wine list. And then a wonderful afternoon with Dame Judi. The chemistry between Dame Judi and Simon is electric, they are old friends, and their banter can be wickedly funny.

I am sure that we will still be social distancing by then, so there will only be 100 seats to sell. The last time Dame Judi appeared here at The Mill, all the tickets went in 24 hours.

Lunch from noon
Matinee performance starts 2.15pm
