hundreds of professional shows from Shakespeare, classic revivals and new plays to alternative comedy, music and poetry events.

The many authors to perform at Pentameters include Dannie Abse, Kingsley Amis, Margaret Drabble, Ted Hughes, Laurie Lee, Roger McGough,
Edna O'Brien, Harold Pinter, John Wain and the psychologist R.D. Laing. The Theatre has also played host to many performers at the start of their
careers, including Russell Brand, Adrian Edmundson, Ben Elton, French and Saunders, Nigel Havers, Celia lmrie, Rik Mayall, Nigel Planer, Jenny
Seagrove, Pamela Stephenson and Alexei Sayle.

To celebrate her commitment to the creative arts, Léonie was honoured as an Associate of the Royal Academy of Music and, as a Hampstead
resident, received a Camden Good Citizen Award in 1998 in recognition of her outstanding work for the community.
