My Dinner With Jeremy Irons - Raindance

Last night at the luxurious Edition Hotel in Central London, Academy Award® winner Jeremy Irons helped to officially launch Raindance’s ‘My Dinner With’ series. The veteran British actor hosted an exclusive charity dinner with seven special guests in support of The Independent Film Trust, raising funds that will enable the Trust to advance the cause of independent filmmaking in the UK.

The guests enjoyed a cocktail reception and a gourmet dinner prepared by the internationally renown and award-winning chef, Jason Atherton.
