News reaches me of an interesting event later this month - The Unite for the Future Gala, in aid of victims of the 11 September atrocity in New York. The gala will be at London's Old Vic Theatre on Sunday 18 November. As well as George Piper Dances, the programme includes Matthew Bourne's Adventures in Motion Pictures, dancing Spitfire - a delicious rarity and almost a signature piece for the company. The telephone number for bookings is 020 7633 9633. Does anyone have any more details?

It's to be hosted by Judi Dench and Kevin Spacey. Including Mick Hucknell, Andrew Lloyd Weber, Cirque du Soleil, cast of Kiss Me Kate, and others I can't remember as well as GPD and AMP. Nice thing is that as well as 1/3 profits going to (mainly UK) bereaved from Sept 11th, another 1/3 goes to a British Council sponsored human rights initiative (sorry don't have any details) and other 1/3 to Medecins sans Frontier working in Afghanistan. Tickets still available but need deep pockets - 525, 270, or 115 pounds
