Acting legend Honor Blackman will be appearing in conversation at Derby’s Guildhall Theatre on Sunday, January 12.

The two-hour event is called Honor Blackman As Herself.

With a career on stage, in television and in films that has extended over 60 years, Honor has decided to mark this astonishing achievement by launching a new show in which she simply appears – as herself.

In conversation with director Richard Digby Day, she tells stories of her childhood.

There are tales of Honor growing up during the Second World War, of her rise to stardom, her leather-clad triumph in television’s The Avengers, and her casting as Pussy Galore in the James Bond movie Goldfinger, a role which brought her world-wide fame and recognition.

She will also share with audiences, for the first time, anecdotes concerning family, friends and colleagues.

Tickets to see Honor Blackman at Derby’s Guildhall Theatre are £14.75. They are available on 01332 255800.
