An Evening with Stanley Tucci

Event details

Wednesday 6th Sep 2023

Barbican Centre, London

Join the inimitable Stanley Tucci – household name, star of blockbuster films such as The Devil Wears Prada and The Hunger Games, cocktail-making Instagram sensation, and food enthusiast – for a very special evening at the Barbican Centre, London to raise money for The Women’s Prize Trust

In conversation with a special guest host, Stanley will reveal anecdotes from his extraordinary career, share recipes from his bestselling book Taste, and more; from growing up in an Italian American family of magnificently talented cooks to his most recent project touring Italy to discover the delights of the country’s regional cuisines. Whether he’s sharing behind-the-scenes stories or divulging his favourite restaurants in London, a night out with Stanley promises to be a truly entertaining evening in celebration of unforgettable meals, Instagram-famous cocktails, and the importance of finding the joy in life. 

With Stanley’s signature wry humour and charm, don’t miss the chance to raise a glass (of Negroni, what else?!) with the beloved actor. 

All profits from this event will be donated to The Women’s Prize Trust. The work of the Women’s Prize Trust is underpinned by a mission to change the world through books by women, opening up pathways into reading and writing for the storytellers and booklovers of tomorrow, and championing equity of opportunity for all women. The registered charity behind the Women’s Prize for Fiction – the greatest international celebration of women’s creativity for three decades – the Trust is developing a global community of writers and readers with increased skills and knowledge, reducing social isolation and enhancing mental health and wellbeing. The charity has recently announced major plans to launch the Women’s Prize for Non-Fiction to champion exceptional women’s narrative non-fiction on a global stage. 

Stanley Tucci is donating 100% net proceeds from An Evening with Stanley Tucci to the Women’s Prize Trust, with all net proceeds raised through the sales of tickets supporting the Trust’s charitable work. The Women’s Prize Trust is a registered charity (1181253).
