Imagine if all your favourite actors decided to quit the screen and stage to work in a restaurant... Well, it actually happened for the Ivy's One Night Only event in aid of Acting for Others. Robert Lindsay, Samantha Bond, Janie Dee, Imelda Staunton OBE, Sheila Hancock CBE, Stefan Booth, Lord Fellowes, Jemma Redgrave, Freddie Fox and many, many more turned waiting staff, whilst Phyllida Law and Joanna David donned rubber gloves and aprons to scrub the ladies' loos! Jim Carter was the restaurants magician for the evening. Orders were taken, plates whizzed around the room and happy diners tucked into yummy dishes. Thank you The Ivy, staff and all the actor volunteers.
