Supported by W Doha, the evening’s activity will commence with a champagne and canape reception, dinner, auction and conclude with a private performance with Paul McCartney. Kevin Spacey commented: ‘I’m delighted to be able to announce The Old Vic 192, our inaugural annual fundraiser on 1st July 2010, in aid of The Old Vic Theatre Trust.
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!’ In aid of The Old Vic Theatre Trust, all monies raised will go to safeguard the 192 year old iconic building, to make great theatre available to all and to mentor the next generation of creative talent. The Old Vic 192 will further support ‘Meat Free Monday’ a not-for-profit environmental campaign which seeks to raise awareness of the climate-changing impact of meat production and consumption. […]
“It was a great pleasure to come and rock out for the old vicars! Such a great event for a good cause. I particularly like the outreach programmes they have for the youth around the area that encourage young kids. When Kevin strong armed me into doing it, as he does, we were only too pleased to show up and step up to the plate. We had a great evening, we rocked out and the crowd did too. We couldn’t have asked for more.” Paul.

From Whom The Bell Tells, July 14, 2010:
Macca then played a party at Battersea Power Station to raise money for the Old Vic Theatre and his own Meat Free Monday campaign. This wasnt exactly your average party though! In front of an audience that included the likes of Dame Judi Dench, Joely Richardson, James Corden, Boris Becker (clutching a candle during Let It Be) and even Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, Paul was joined on-stage by one of his biggest fans none other than Old Vic boss and actor Kevin Spacey.Stuart Bell

Backstage at the Old Vic Show last night the crew pulled together with Paul to commemorate the third anniversary of the passing of one of their much loved family member’s John Roden. Paul led the tribute as all the team raised a glass to remember their dearly missed colleague and friend. John Roden – 30th April 1954 – 1st July 2007
