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 - CBeebies Bedtime Stories, The Book of Disquiet, Sunday Brunch, Henry V

Sam will read "The Jumblies" by Edward Lear on CBeebies Bedtime Stories, Sunday 24 January (BBC press office).

In an article in the Montclair Dispatch, Michel van der Aa said, "Sam West has been really wonderful in rehearsals [for The Book of Disquiet].  He made the part his own and I can’t wait to see it on stage”. It will be performed  21-24 January at Montclair State University (click here for tickets).

He will perform at the Menuhin 100 Festival in July, "in a celebration in words and music of the 400th anniversary of the death of Shakespeare" (Yehudi Menuhin School).


Sam was a guest on yesterday's episode of Sunday Brunch. During the show he tweeted a picture of himself with the board games has only played once. Here are some pictures of Sam in the studio.

He is a signatory on a letter opposing making the English Baccalaureate compulsory in schools (his Twitter, @exitthelemming).

Below is my Storify for the Henry V performance with the CBSO: press reviews, tweets from Sam as well as tweets from orchestra, chorus and audience members. The concert will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3 today.

Sam is pictured in Vortex issue #83, alongside a feature about The Diary of River Song. He plays Mr Song in the episode "Signs".
