Dame June Whitfield in Conversation at the V&A

Dame June Whitfield’s extensive career encompasses classics such as 'Take It From Here', 'Terry and June', the Carry On films and 'Absolutely Fabulous'. Join senior curator Simon Sladen in conversation with Dame June and her daughter, actress Suzy Aitchison, as they discuss a life of comedy on stage, radio and screen, in celebration of the V&A’s recent acquisition of her extensive archives.

Of course, us Carry On fans know June for her wonderful performances in four Carry Ons - as Meg opposite Leslie Phillips in Carry On Nurse; Evelyn Blunt with Kenneth Connor in Abroad; the glorious Augusta Prodworthy in Carry On Girls and finally, as the Queen of Spain in Carry On Columbus in 1992. She also reunited with Terry Scott for the Rogers and Thomas big screen version of Bless This House.  
Dame June will be "In Conversation" at the Victoria and Albert Museum on Monday 22nd January 2018. The evening will begin at 19.00 and conclude at 20.45. It will take place in The Lydia and Manfred Gorvy Lecture Theatre and tickets cost £15 including a wine reception. I've got my tickets booked and of course, I'll be blogging all about it after the event. If you fancy coming along you can buy tickets here
