Summer Party with Kevin Spacey and Paul McCartney

Old Vic 192

Stars from the musical and art worlds unite to save London’s Old Vic Theatre.

Actor Kevin Spacey is hosting a fund-raising gala concert and art auction in aid of Old Vic Theatre, a 192-year old building that suffered damage from bombings during WWII. Proceeds will help repair the Old Vic leaky roof.

Numerous artists have donated special artworks for this one of a kind auction, at an exclusive preview at the Haunch of Unison:

In addition to the art auction, Sir Paul McCartney will also perform a one-night-only concert for 450 guests. The Summer Party will be held at The Boiler House at Battersea Power Station.

The Old Vic’s artistic director Kevin Spacey, said: “We are thrilled Paul McCartney will lend his extraordinary talents on the evening alongside brilliant artists who’ve generously donated their artworks for auction. It’s set to be quite a night.”

Tickets for the Summer Party start at $750 (£500) and go up to $15,000 (£10,000) for a premium table for 10 which offers a VIP reception with Spacey and star guests

A proportion of the evening’s proceeds will also go to McCartney’s Meat Free Monday campaign, which promotes vegetarianism among meat-eaters for one day a week, as it would result in greater carbon savings.

The Old Vic boasts a rich history of great productions from Olivier’s Hamlet to Ian McKellen’s Widow Twankey. Through Old Vic New Voices, the organization also nurtures young actors, writers and directors, and works with schools and neighbours to bring theatre to a wider audience.
