Legendary Dame Berwick Kaler is returning to the stage of York Theatre Royal for one night only in An Audience With Berwick Kaler on 16 October at 7.30pm.

He will be talking to Look North presenter and York pantomime guest star Harry Gration at a special fund-raising event as part of the theatre’s 275th birthday celebrations.

Berwick, who has stepped down as York Theatre Royal’s world famous pantomime Dame after 40 years, will be talking about a life in showbiz, from humble origins in Sunderland and a stint in London to finding fame and acclaim as York’s Dame.

All money raised will go towards the Berwick Kaler Foundation, which helps ensure everyone, regardless of circumstances, can experience the magic of live theatre.

Berwick is no longer performing as the Dame but is writing and co-directing (with Matt Aston) this year’s pantomime Sleeping Beauty, from 7 December to 25 January.
