A Grand Night Out, the biannual fundraiser in aid of Battersea Arts Centre, will feature playwright Simon Stephens interviewing footballing legend Gary Lineker, and Touretteshero’s Jess Thom interviewing broadcaster Jon Snow.

There is also the chance for a lucky raffle winner to do some interviewing.

Battersea Arts Centre needs £500,000 every year to run projects such as The Agency, which sees young men and women from local housing estates develop their own social enterprises, and BAC Beatbox Academy.

Further performers are to be announced.

This event is relaxed. A designated 'chill-out space' is provided for guests who may need time away from the performance space and there are ear defenders available for those with sensory sensitivities.

A Grand Night Out will take place 10 March at Battersea Arts Centre in London.
