Dame Judi Dench has said she is “thrilled” and “delighted” to reopen a south London playhouse in honour of her mentor Dame Peggy Ashcroft.
The award-winning actress, 84, will kick off a week of events to mark the reopening of Ashcroft Playhouse at Fairfield Halls in Croydon on September 16.
The day will see Dame Judi sit down with broadcaster John Hannam for a Q&A about Croydon-born actress Dame Peggy in front of local drama students.
Also on the day, Fairfield Halls will unveil a giant commemorative photo mosaic, commissioned from artist 𝗛𝗲𝗹𝗲𝗻 𝗠𝗮𝗿𝘀𝗵𝗮𝗹𝗹 for 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗣𝗲𝗼𝗽𝗹𝗲𝘀' 𝗣𝗶𝗰𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲 and made up of thousands of images submitted by Ashcroft's fans.
