World-famous actor and director Rupert Everett is coming to Wells Maltings for a one-off fundraising event.
It will raise funds for Burnham Overy Village Hall's play equipment campaign, as well as for Wells Maltings' many community programmes.
The event, which starts at 6.15pm on Saturday, May 25, includes a screening of the 2018 box-office hit The Happy Prince in the building's new auditorium, in the company of the film's lead actor, director and writer.
Mr Everett, who is originally from Burnham Deepdale in north Norfolk and still has relatives in the area, will introduce what has been described as his "passion project", paying tribute to Oscar Wilde with a poignant look at the poet and playwright's tragic final days.
The special screening will be followed by a Q&A session, giving audience members the opportunity to pitch their questions to him in person.
