Sam, Frances de la Tour, Susan Wooldridge, Charlotte Cornwell, Adjoa Andoh and Jonathan Pryce will perform in Voices for Cuba: an Evening of Music and Spoken Word at the Barbican on 7 March (via @voices4the5).
Tonight's concert at The Hexagon was featured as a "Live Choice" in the BBC Music Magazine (February 2014 issue). Sam is the narrator for Carnival of the Animals.

Armstrong and Miller is being repeated on BBC Radio 4 Extra on Mondays. Episode 1 will be available on iPlayer for 6 more days.

Sam finished filming Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell this week (his Twitter, @exitthelemming).
He will play Benedict in Suffragette. The film's cast includes Carey Mulligan, Romola Garai, Ben Whishaw and Helena Bonham Carter (Screen Daily and @exitthelemming).

Last week, Sam gave a masterclass at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (@exitthelemming and @SophCotts).

In 2013, Sam played Edvard Munch in a rehearsed reading of Edvard by Jack Shepherd. The reading took place at RADA; it was directed by Michael Kingsbury and Christie Banks played Eva (Spellbound Productions).
