Thanks to the lovely cast of ‘Call the Midwife’ for some fantastic last-minute additions to the Forget-Me-Not Project Christmas Auction which starts soon (28th November) in aid of Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. They have provided 4 exclusive BBC postcards signed by the actresses pictured and 1 Forget-Me-Not postcard signed by the entire principal cast.
I didn’t think I could love this show and this cast any more than I already did… turns out I was wrong!
Yay! My favourite actors from my favourite show are kicking off the TV promotion for Series 3. From the Call the Midwife Facebook page:
Great news! Laura Main and Stephen McGann will be appearing on ITVs Daybreak breakfast show in the UK tomorrow! They’ll be chatting about Call the Midwife, their roles - and about our brand new Christmas record, out next week!! Make sure to carch it between 7 and 8am
OK, so I won’t be in the country to watch it, but fingers crossed that some kind soul will upload it to YouTube. :-)
Also, the photos above (+autographed cards) go on sale in aid of Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research exactly a week from today as part of a bumper Xmas auction including lots of CTM and other goodies - via http://www.forget-me-not-project.co.uk
A collage of all the Call the Midwife items I have collected this year, all of which will be up for sale in aid of Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research in a Christmas auction which begins on 28th November.
It’s been an absolute blast collecting the various photos/drawings/autographs, and especially meeting some lovely people along the way. I hope to have 1-2 more CTM items to add to the listings before the auction begins and there will be many more items from other shows/actors/authors. Please check it out!
The Forget Me Not Project. in aid of Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research - help beat blood cancers
Mother & Daughter reunion!
Last year I was lucky enough to attend a special fundraising event at the Criterion Theatre in London featuring one of my favourite performers - aka An Evening with Miranda Hart. It was held in aid of Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research and, in an unexpected bonus, one of the original ‘Calendar Girls’ was in the audience alongside Patricia Hodge who has performed in the stage production.
I took a photo of Miranda with the Forget-Me-Not flower at the stage door that night but for some reason it didn’t come out. :/ I had to wait nearly a year before I got another opportunity and managed to capture the lovely photo above. (And was chuffed that MH remembered the flower).
Both ‘mother’ and ‘daughter’ photos are being included in a bumper Christmas auction running between 28th November-8th December in aid of Leukaemia Research. They will be sold with unique autographed postcards which Miranda Hart & Patricia Hodge have signed. There are also other Miranda, Call the Midwife and TV/film/theatre goodies up for grabs too, so please check out http://www.forget-me-not-project.co.uk and help spread the word if you can. Thanks!
Christian Borle of Smash - one of my favourite Broadway performers.
I first saw him in Spamalot back in 2005 where he very nearly stole the show as Prince Herbert (a heck of an achievement considering the cast included Tim Curry, David Hyde Pierce, Hank Azaria, Christopher Sieber and Sara Ramirez)! I’ve also seen him on stage in Legally Blonde and on TV in Smash, as well as in the production he did steal last year, Peter and the Starcatcher (‘stole’ might be too mild a word - grand larceny might be a more appropriate term). ;-)
I saw the NYMT production of ‘Peter’ downtown and the Broadway version uptown and absolutely loved it! I found it wonderfully reminiscent of the show which director Roger Rees’ starred in way back when, the RSC’s ‘The Life & Times of Nicholas Nickleby’, a show which cemented my love of all things theatre when I was growing up. I even went to a reunion talk in Stratford-upon-Avon for NN last year. But I digress…!
This cute photo of Christian Borle is being auctioned in aid of Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research in memory of my sister. The auction runs between 28th Nov-8th Dec and has loads of theatre, TV and film star photos / autographs & memorabilia. PLEASE check out my website at http://www.forget-me-not-project.co.uk and reblog to spread the word.
