Joanna Lumley to star in Radio Live at Chichester Festival Theatre

Joanna Lumley is to star in Radio Live at Chichester Festival Theatre.

Renowned actress Joanna Lumley is set to join the cast of Radio Live for a spectacular performance at the Chichester Festival Theatre on Saturday, 20 January 2024.

After two previous sold-out shows, this much-anticipated event marks the show’s return, five years since its last staging, offering audiences another unforgettable experience.

Radio Live is a unique production that delves into the world of broadcasting, providing an evening filled with comedy, music, and a nostalgic journey through radio history. Lumley, a beloved national figure, will be a very special guest, adding her charisma and talent to an already stellar lineup of seasoned radio professionals.

The show features Sir Richard Stilgoe, known for his spontaneous composition of comedy songs, and Alistair McGowan, whose impressions of broadcasting greats are expected to be a highlight. They will be joined by Charlotte Green and Garry Richardson, who will share fascinating inside stories from their extensive careers in radio. Collectively, these presenters bring over two centuries of broadcasting experience to the stage.

The event promises to be a celebration of broadcasting, with a rich mix of sparkling anecdotes, sketches, and music that spans the decades. Audiences can look forward to an evening that not only entertains but also pays homage to the rich history and evolution of radio broadcasting.
