Celebrating Creativity and Innovation between the UK and the US

 

Special Announcement

Dear BritWeek supporters,

As you may already know, Sharon and Bob Peirce have left Los Angeles for Sharon’s family home in Virginia. As the new Chairman, it befalls me to inform you about this year’s Britweek events. 

As a charity it is extremely important for Britweek to focus and prioritize on events that will provide funds. Consequently we are only producing 3 events this year. The first will be a return to the Wallis Annenberg for Louis Fantasia’s highly successful “Shakespeare Evening” on Saturday, April 28th. It will again be hosted by Loan Gruffudd and Joely Fisher with over 27 acting luminaries participating. Our last event sold out extremely quickly so be sure to go online or call the Annenberg box office as soon as you can, (310) 746-4000. Ticket prices start at $40. 

Our next event on May 4th is in partnership with the British Government’s GREAT campaign. It is “The GREAT Britweek Innovation Awards.” Held at the Fairmont Hotel in Santa Monica, this promises to be a great evening's entertainment. Not just inside the ballroom but outside in the grounds of the hotel. Tables of 10 begin at $5,000 and individual tickets are $500. We are not at liberty to name the honorees at this time but they range from movie makers, TV stars, fashionistas, and tech. Innovators. MTA Events will be handling ticket sales and tables will be available for purchase soon.

Our final event is at the Getty Villa entitled "A Modern Take on Plato". It is an homage to Plato through the eyes of modern painters. The exciting news is that Jeff Koons will be unveiling his new work. Unfortunately this event will be by  invitation only. 

Among the charities we will be supporting this year is Cinemagic. With the help of your donations we will create a Britweek Scholarship that will send 5 inner city kids to the UK.

I hope to see you at one or more of these events and thank you personally for your continuing support of BRITWEEK.

Dr. Nigel Lythgoe OBE
Chairman, Founder

BritWeek - the Special Relationship

Britain and America enjoy a unique union, a special relationship characterised by decades of shared values and leadership on the world stage.

BritWeek celebrates this relationship and how the creative talent from these two great countries comes together in the unique setting of Hollywood. This is more than just celebrating brilliant Brits or amazing Americans, its about what happens when they come together.

It's what happens when Charlie Chaplin brings his unique talent to shape the film industry, or when Simon Fuller turns Pop Idol into American Idol or when Disney takes Star Wars to Pinewood and reinvents a franchise and spawns a new generation of fans.

The British-American special relationship is about politics, it's about security, it's about music, film and television, it's about visiting each other's countries, studying in them, playing sport in them - NFL games in London, and visiting EPL teams here.

It's about innovation and creativity, it's one million Brits working for American companies and one million Americans working for British companies.

BritWeek celebrates this relationship, it reminds us of the best of both countries and what happens when we join together. It's something special, and something we want you to be part of.
