Joanna Lumley to host National Youth Ballet Memorial Gala

National Youth Ballet has just announced that Joanna Lumley will host a special Memorial Gala  at Sadler's Wells on Sunday 4 September at 7:30 pm, celebrating their inspirational Founder and Artistic Director Jill Tookey, who passed away in March this year.

Joanna Lumley has been a patron of National Youth Ballet since 1989, when she met Jill at one of the company's performances at Sadler's Wells. Joanna has since become a huge supporter of the company, and has narrated two of their ballets. Joanna will host the gala performance on Sunday 4 September, where she will be joined on stage by many returning alumni, who now dance for leading companies including Royal Ballet, English National Ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet and Matthew Bourne's New Adventures.
