Julie Andrews in London: The actress talks about her new memoir

Julie Andrews

She burst into our hearts with Mary Poppins in ’64, solidified our love for her with The Sound of Music in ’65 and proved she can do funny with The Princess Diaries alongside Anne Hathaway in 2001, but if there’s one thing we can all be certain of, it’s that Dame Julie Andrews is the diamond in the crown of entertainment royalty.

And now in 2019, in a UK-exclusive event, the Southbank Centre will present ‘A Conversation with Dame Julie Andrews’, a one-time special event that will see the beloved star discuss her highly anticipated memoir, Home Work: A Memoir of My Hollywood Years.

She’s known for her trademark honesty and lively wit and will no doubt use it to her full advantage in a personal reflection on her extraordinary career.

Andrews will talk in details about the experiences of stage and film roles that have garnered her multiple awards and a very special place in the world’s heart.

Andrews will take the audience on a very special, very intimate journey spanning more than half a century as she talks about her movie and stage experiences, the music and songs that shot her to fame and hopefully, the surgery that stifled her angelic chords all the way back in ’97.

There’ll even be a pre-arranged Q&A for the Dame after the interview.

An allocation of tickets goes on sale to Southbank Centre Members at 10am on Tuesday 30 July and a further allocation goes on sale to the General Public at 10am on Wednesday 31 July. Each ticket will include a hardback copy of Home Work: A Memoir of My Hollywood Years (RRP £20) supplied by Foyles bookshop.
