My blog has quite a lot of posts about Samuel West (Julius Caesar, On Chesil Beach and Darkest Hour) and Charles Edwards (My Fair Lady Australian tour and Henry IX).

Samuel West - TV, 50p for Culture, music

Sam confirmed on Twitter that he will be in the third series of Mr Selfridge. Filming begins this week.
He is in this Sunday's episode of The Crimson Field. It was filmed at the same time as Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell (his Twitter, @exitthelemming).

Two weeks ago, Sam spoke about 50p for Culture on Front Row (via @exitthelemming). He also wrote a blog post on the Arts Funding Ning, "Welcoming Sajid Javid, the new Culture Minister".

A video of Sam presenting the DVD award at the BBC Music Magazine Awards is now on Youtube (via @MusicMagazine). Here are some screencaps from the clip (click them for full size).

The April 2014 issue of the BBC Music Magazine has a positive review of Nocturne. An excerpt:
"Experienced in the context of Harriet Walter's and Samuel West's compelling exploration of the Chopin-George Sand love affair through their letters and diary entries, the music [performed by Lucy Parham] assumes a special sense of poignancy." (text source: perthfestival.co.uk)
Booking is now open for Peace in Our Time? a series of concerts by the Garsington Opera Orchestra (6 July at the Wormsley Estate). Click here for tickets.
Sam will perform at the Hatfield House Music Festival in late September. Booking opens in May.

Waste (directed by Sam in 2008) was chosen by Mark Lawson as one of his top ten productions at the Almeida (The Guardian).
