Cause UK presents ‘An evening with Miriam Margolyes’ on behalf of the Malton Dickensian Festival on 21st December 2019. Book tickets here.
Headlining the 2019 festival is BAFTA winning Miriam Margolyes, whose one-woman show Dickens’ Women was nominated for an Olivier award. The veteran of stage and screen featured in Scorsese’s The Age of Innocence, Ladies in Lavender, and played Professor Sprout in the Harry Potter movies.
Dickens’ great, great, great granddaughter, Lucinda Hawksley will also feature and host an audience Q&A with Miriam. National treasure Miriam will perform snippets from her one woman show and talk about her extraordinary life and career.
Miriam Margolyes said: “I am delighted to return to Malton again this year. I fell in love with Dickens at school and would like to appeal to children, young people and adults alike to come and enjoy the spirit of ‘A Christmas Carol’. Dickens is the best. Once you’re hooked by his words, his books will enrich you over a lifetime. The evening is going to be enormous fun.”
Clair Challenor-Chadwick, Trustee of the Malton Dickensian Festival and Managing Director of Cause UK said: “The Malton Dickensian Festival is part of our overall work to reclaim Yorkshire’s literary heritage and celebrate the remarkable connection Dickens had to Malton. We are delighted to welcome Miriam and Lucinda back to Malton.”
