You may have read my earlier post about the Royal Albert Hall @ home series. This is one of their later events bringing exclusive sessions from artists’ homes to yours whilst the Hall is shut. You can listen to David Walliams read an extract from his children’s stories as part of this series on Saturday 22 August 2020, starting at 2:00pm (BST).
Watch the broadcast for free from the Royal Albert Hall website:
- Saturday 22 August 2020
- Start time: 2:00pm (BST)
- It will also be available on demand after the initial broadcast.
See the full Royal Albert Home series on the Royal Albert Hall website.
These shows are all available for free but, if you can, please donate to the Royal Albert Hall. The RAH relies on the income from their shows and on charitable donations to keep them going and they currently have no regular funding from government.
If you are a David Walliams fan, you can also listen to him via his website, as he is still providing free 'Elevenses' sessions and catch-up sessions. (Listen to his latest 'Elevenses' and catch-up sessions.)
David Walliams will read an extract from his children’s stories as part of the Royal Albert Home sessions. Best known for his work with Matt Lucas on the BBC sketch comedy series Rock Profile, Little Britain, and Come Fly With Me, the English comedian, actor, writer, and television personality went on to appear in numerous films, including Stardust, Dinner for Schmucks, Great Expectations, Murder Mystery and has been a judge on Britain’s Got Talent since 2012. David published his first children’s book The Boy in the Dress, illustrated by Sir Quentin Blake, in 2008. His novels have since been translated into 53 languages and sold over 37 million copies worldwide. Described as “the fastest-growing children’s author in the UK”, with a literary style compared to that of Roald Dahl, David was awarded an OBE for his services to charity and the arts in 2017.
