Dame Diana Rigg leads the stellar line-up of entertainment set for the Cutty Sark’s autumn theatre season.

Earlier this year, the hold of the Greenwich clipper was transformed into a 92-seat venue and a two-week opening programme sold out.

Now, a series of further shows have been announced with the Avenger the first, and biggest, name on the bill.

Dame Diana, whose long stage and film career has included On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and Game of Thrones, will bring her best-selling autobiography to the stage on October 17, followed by a Q&A session.

Just a Minute’s Nicholas Parsons will amuse an audience with humorous tales from his life on October 18.

Other people appearing at the Cutty Sark Studio Theatre this autumn include well-known foreign correspondent Andy Kershaw, Charlie Connelly’s show about the 90th birthday of the shipping forecast, and comedians Quincy and Dane Baptiste.

Thanks for the heads-up to see Dame Diana at the Cutty Sark - already booked 3 tkts.
However, it's a bit mis-leading to say her 'autobiography'....s
he vows never to write one. This her 'show' based on her book 'No Turn Unstoned' which is a collection of bad theatrical reviews and a potted history of the theatre. She is performing this in Edinburgh at the moment for the next 9 days too!
Extra info: She will be performing on Broadway in December in 'Love Letters' with Stacey Keach and is to film Celebrity Antiques Roadshow as well as series 5 of 'Game of Thrones' soon too!
