The Elephant Man, directed by David Lynch, was released in 1980 and starred John Hurt and Anthony Hopkins. It tells the true tale of a badly deformed young man in Victorian London, known in the film as John Merrick and how he is taken under the wing of kind surgeon Frederick Treves. The Elephant Man is a magnificent film and a moving experience.

Simon Treves is the great-great nephew of Frederick Treves, the surgeon who looked after The Elephant Man, played in the film by Anthony Hopkins. As an actor, Simon has performed in many of Britain’s leading theatres. He has worked with Hopkins three times. His television credits include Jeeves and Wooster, Red Dwarf and Lynda La Plante’s Above Suspicion.

    If anyone is attending this event, it would be appreciated, if you could buy tickets, which are a couple of quid cheaper than via the cinema, at the above website, Soundstage Events. Thanks! I hope to see you there.
