Their friendship began in 2000 while they were both appearing in London’s West End. Dame Maggie, 86, was in The Lady In The Van at the Queen’s Theatre while Turner, 66, was starring in The Graduate at the Gielgud Theatre.

Despite two decades of friendship, they have never performed publicly together.

Independent production company Fane began its Fane Online series in September 2020 and more than 72,000 tickets have been sold.

Food writer Nigella Lawson, presenter Jeremy Vine and boxing promoter Eddie Hearn are among those who have made appearances.

The event will take place on April 8 and tickets are available here.
