Courtyard Classics Live – Featuring Jemma Redgrave

“Courtyard Classics Live” is a four day festival at Beckenham Place Park, London. Jemma will appear on Day Two:

Day Two, July 23rd – A Soldier’s Tale

A septet of London’s top musicians from the English Chamber Orchestra unravel Stravinsky’s virtuosic score, reliving the Russian folk tale of a soldier who trades his fiddle for unparalleled gain. This darkly witty theatrical work, narrated here by the legendary Jemma Redgrave, was first seen in 1918 but the planned run of performances had to be cut short due to the Spanish ‘flu epidemic. Virtuosic Co-Leader of the London Philharmonic Vesselin Gellev is the solo violinist.

All concerts last one hour with food and drink available.

For more information and to book tickets, go to “Courtyard Classics Live”.

Royal Albert Hall 150th Anniversary Concert – Special Guest: Jemma Redgrave

A bit short notice this but Jemma will be a “special guest” at the Royal Albert Hall’s 150th Anniversary Concert on Monday 19 July 2021 at 7.30pm:

Join us in this celebration of the Hall’s 150th birthday at our first full-capacity event since March 2020

David Arnold (James Bond films, Independence Day, Sherlock) turns his compositional genius to create a musical snapshot of the Hall’s unique history. Let this new ten-movement work, titled A Circle of Sound, take you on a sonic journey through our first 150 years.

Special guests including Melanie C, Michael Sheen, Nicola Adams, Brian Cox, Claudia Winkleman, Jess Gillam, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Charles Dance, LionHeart, Eden Tikare, Jemma Redgrave and Helen Pankhurst will join David on stage to present readings about each movement penned by writers Neil Gaiman, Jack Thorne, Dorian Lynskey and Joe Penhall.

Creative agency People – who produced the show and visuals for the 2019 Special Olympics Opening and Closing Ceremonies – and film production house White Stone Media will bring the show to life on the big screen.

Local choirs, schools, and other community groups worked with David for over a year to compose this new piece. They will also take to the stage to show the importance of our community after this year of turmoil, supported by our very own Albert’s Orchestra and the National Youth Choir of Great Britain.

We can’t wait to welcome you back for this special anniversary event celebrating our history this summer.

Jemma will feature in #5:

Let Us Through the Guarded Gate 8’30
The Suffragettes and their history at the Hall
presented by Helen Pankhurst
feat. Jemma Redgrave

Tickets are available from the Royal Albert Hall website

London Film and Comic Con Postponed Until November 2021

Due to the current Covid restrictions being extended, London Film and Comic Con have taken the difficult decision to postpone the event until the weekend of 19, 20 and 21 November 2021.

If you have already purchased a ticket for the July event, these will automatically roll over to November. As soon as I hear any news as to whether Jemma will be attending the November event (or an alternative), I will post it here. It might be worth keeping an eye on their Facebook page too. London Film and Comic Con have released the following statement:

By now you will have all heard the official statement from the UK government and that they have paused the roadmap out of lockdown. We are bitterly disappointed but understand that we all have a part to play to make sure that the virus stays under control and that once the restrictions are lifted, it has a lasting effect.

As the proposed date for the next phase is now the 19th July it means it is simply not feasible for London Film & Comic Con to go ahead over the weekend of 23rd -25th July 2021 so it is with a heavy heart we have taken the tough decision postpone the event until the country has properly reopened. Our aim is always to deliver well run, fun events with the high calibre of guests you know us for and with this update to the restrictions we do not feel this is possible.

We had everything in place to have gone ahead for the July 2021 date but after the update from the government this evening pushing back lifting of the lockdown restrictions for a further 4 weeks minimum, this has sadly left us not enough time to get the event ready. We rely on local councils to provide signoff, guidelines and permits for running the event and we have been informed that these would not be in place with only a possible 4-day window.

LFCC will move into the weekend of 19th, 20th & 21st November 2021 and the London Comic Con Winter will be postponed until the back end of 2022. It’s sad for all of us that we cannot celebrate all that we love and meet up with each other at what is the biggest event of its kind in the UK and I know you, like the guests and myself, will be disappointed that this summer’s event is not going to happen as planned.

We are talking to all our guests and their agents to confirm their availability but the below have already rescheduled to the new date. They are eager to join us as soon as we are finally out the other side of this awful pandemic.

Elizabeth Mitchell
Mark Pellegrino
Clare Kramer
Jason O’Mara
Tom Skerritt
Veronica Cartwright
Amanda Tapping
Ben Browder
Barry Bostwick
Alice Cooper
Robert Englund

In the coming days and weeks, we will confirm all of the other names. Please be patient with us as we gather this new info and get feedback from the guests as to what shows they will be able to attend and website all of our platforms. We will try to re-book them into the London Film & Comic Con date in November, so it is easy for you all to meet the guests you wanted to meet. If guests cannot attend the November date, then we will look at inviting them to the other dates in our calendar like Film & Comic Con Birmingham in September.

All tickets will automatically roll over to the date of their appearances but if you are not able to make these then we can issue you a digital voucher that can be used at any Showmasters event or on the website, any time up to two years of issue.

The entire events industry across the board has suffered badly with the impact of the pandemic and even people like Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber are worried around being able to re-open the theatres in London. There is no help from the government for anyone in the events industry so it is down to us to be careful and keep the companies we run in a good strong position to re-start live events. Showmasters and its sister companies are safe and in a good place ready to start up again once we are able.

We ran our first small comic mart last month within the COVID safe guidelines provided by the government. We were praised for how we delivered this first event but running a large scale one with the lockdown rules in place and with only 4 days clearance is just not possible so we will regroup and focus our efforts on delivery an amazing event in November.

Once again thank you for your help and support. We are all fans here and are desperate to get back to live events where we can come together to enjoy what we all love. Until that day we want you to all stay safe and to take care of yourself and your loved ones and we will see you soon.

Thank you everyone
Jason Joiner
