Both men are accomplished raconteurs, and both have written books on well-known actors: Callow has written biographies of Orson Welles and Charles Laughton, Garland of Sir Rex Harrison.
Tickets are £75 (£20 ticket plus a minimum £55 donation) and for further details contact the box office on 020 7722 9301.
