VANESSA REDGRAVE LIVE AT THE FREUD MUSEUM LONDON

Join us for two very special fundraising evenings in support of the Freud Museum London, devised by legendary actor Vanessa Redgrave.  

These are entirely in support of the Freud Museum London which receives no direct public funding and has suffered significant financial loss during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Live streamed tickets are available to view the performances as they happen from anywhere in the world.

RALPH FIENNES and VANESSA REDGRAVE
Live at the Freud Museum London

Sunday 13 September, 6-7.30pm [British Summer Time]

A once in a lifetime opportunity to see two of the UK’s most outstanding actors perform in the beautiful garden of Sigmund Freud’s final home.

Vanessa and Ralph, joined by actress Daisy Bevan, will read texts ranging from Professor Freud, Sylvia Pankhurst and William Shakespeare.

This event has been instigated and devised by Vanessa Redgrave, who before lockdown was working with the Freud Museum on a forthcoming exhibition Code Name Mary: The extraordinary life of Muriel Gardiner, now postponed until 2021.

In 2016 Ralph and Vanessa performed together in a critically acclaimed production of Richard III at the Almeida Theatre, and are reunited for this special one night only event.

Sunday 4 October, 6-7.30pm [British Summer Time]

Join legendary actor Vanessa Redgrave and veteran campaigner Lord Alf Dubs for an evening of discussion, performance and readings on the theme of refugees, migration and exile. 

Lord Alf Dubs will be in conversation with Museum Director Carol Seigel, talking about his own experiences as a Kindertransport refugee and as a campaigner today for child refugees.  

Vanessa will be joined by actors Paul Hilton and Daisy Bevan for readings and reflections on the refugee experience, past and present.   

This very special fundraising evening takes place in the home where Sigmund Freud and his family, including his daughter Anna Freud, settled in 1938 after fleeing Nazi oppression in Vienna. It is one of the few museums in the UK that celebrates the life and work of two refugees.

The event has been instigated and devised by Vanessa Redgrave, who before lockdown was working with the Freud Museum on a forthcoming exhibition Code Name Mary: The extraordinary life of Muriel Gardiner, now postponed until 2021.

£20 each to watch the live streamed performance

KEEP FREUD'S LONDON HOME OPEN

A small, successful museum, Sigmund and Anna Freud’s final home and its powerful stories have been shared with thousands of visitors. The unique atmosphere of Freud’s study and iconic couch, preserved as he left it, offers a deeply emotional and inspirational experience. His home remains a beacon of the importance of depth psychology and the healing effects of the “talking cure”.

The Freud Museum receives no direct public funding, and, without visitors, has lost its principal source of income. We have been resourceful in maximizing available funds and developing alternative income streams, and have reopened to strictly limited numbers. But these measures are simply not enough to ensure our survival.

We are reaching out to ask for financial support during this uniquely challenging period. Please consider a gift to the Freud Museum London. Your support, however large or small, will make a huge difference to our future.

Card donations can be made online, or in GBP from anywhere in the world via PayPal.

It is possible to make Tax Free Donations from the United States to the Freud Museum London. To find out more, please email development@freud.org.uk
