It comes after Coronavirus restrictions have left theatres and cinemas empty this Christmas James Bond stars Daniel Craig and Dame Judi Dench have joined the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall in recording a much-loved festive poem in aid of charity.

Charles and Camilla have been filmed narrating ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas with a host of performers to raise awareness about the Actors’ Benevolent Fund which has received more requests for help this year than ever before.

The actors who took part included Tom Hardy, Dame Maggie Smith, Joanna Lumley, Ncuti Gatwa and the ABF’s president Dame Penelope Keith.

The heir to the throne read the famous opening lines of Clement Clarke Moore’s poem: “‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.”
