The event, dubbed the Old Vic 192, will raise money for the theatre trust and support Meat Free Monday. It will take place at the Boiler House (Battersea Power Station) in London, and will be hosted by artistic director Kevin Spacey and chief executive Sally Greene.
Tickets for the event will start at £500, and go up to £10,000 for a premium table with VIP reception. There will be a champagne and canapé reception, dinner and art auction prior to McCartney's performance.
I'm delighted to be able to announce The Old Vic 192, our inaugural annual fundraiser on 30th June 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!
Tickets for the night can be booked via firstname.lastname@example.org.
