  • Report from The Lullaby Trust Charity Event – An Evening at The Palace

    An Evening at The Palace

    The first is meeting HRH The Duchess of Gloucester

    She is a beautiful lady

    So graceful and kind

    A wonderful listener

    She shook my hand, twice

    She asked about Matilda and about the twins

    When I told her about Esther and William

    And how they talk everyday about Baby Tilda in the sky

    She had tears in her eyes

    And to my total surprise she cuddled me

    And it was wonderful

    And I know that she meant it

    And she does not know me but she cares

    And that meant so much to me

    I managed to stay composed thankfully

    Which is much more than I did when I met the wonderful Emilia Fox

    Emilia Fox is a heroine of mine

    I have idolised her for a long time

    I promised myself that I would not gush at her if I met her

    But I did

    Louise from Lullaby Trust asked if I would like to meet her

    I said that I would but I couldn’t because it would be too emotional

    My love affair with Emilia Fox began before my children were born

    She is a wonderful actress

    She reads children’s audio books

    Including Owl Babies which we adore

    She played Morgause in Merlin

    I copied her hair from my wedding!

    I promised I would not gush about any of these things

    But in fact I did

    And we laughed together

    For me through my tears

    As I was so honoured that this amazing lady

    Came over to me and hugged me

    She sat down with me and held my hand

    She asked me about Tilda

    And she really listened when I talked about her

    Really listened

    I could have talked to her all night

    It was wonderful

    Amazing

    I talked about my beautiful baby girl

    To the stunning and amazing Emilia Fox

    I was so excited when she became an Ambassador for The Lullaby Trust

    She was everything I hoped she would be

    And she had time to sit and talk about Tilda

    And that meant the world.

    The palace was full of lovely people last night

    I could write and write and write about the evening

    An anniversary of 25 years outstanding work

    HRH The Duchess of Gloucester, Patron of The Lullaby Trust, together with Charity Ambassador, Emilia Fox, celebrate Christmas early at St James’s Palace, London with 250 CONI health visitors

    St James’s Palace was the perfect setting for Christmas carols and Yuletide fayre tonight, in the presence of HRH The Duchess Gloucester, Patron of The Lullaby Trust and lauded international actress and Charity Ambassador, Ms Emilia Fox. The Duchess and Ms Fox attended The Lullaby Trust charity event to celebrate 25 years of the charity’s Care of Next Infant (CONI) programme. Over 300 people, including 250 health visitors, were also in attendance at this delightful event, supported by the No1 safer sleep brand in the UK and Australia, The Gro Company.

    The reception, set against the backdrop of a 16 foot Christmas tree and the voices of the Olswang LLP Choir, not only marked the 25th anniversary of The Lullaby Trust’s CONI programme, but also recognised the hard work of these highly experienced health visitors who offer this unique service throughout the country. CONI provides support to families who are looking forward to a new arrival, but who have experienced the sudden and unexpected death of a baby in the past.

    Francine Bates OBE, Chief Executive of The Lullaby Trust, said during her speech: “We were delighted to have our Patron, The Duchess of Gloucester here tonight to share this special occasion, as well as our valued Ambassador, Ms Emilia Fox, who has taken time out of her busy filming schedule to be with us.
    Through CONI, The Lullaby Trust provides funds for specialist-monitoring equipment and provides health advice and reassurance along the way until the new baby is six months old. This programme has supported over 20,000 families in the last 25 years.
    Christian Jones, Managing Director of The Gro Company, added: “Tonight has been a wonderful testament to The Lullaby Trust and CONI’s dedication during the last 25 years. Having HRH The Duchess of Gloucester in attendance, The Lullaby Trust Patron, as well as Charity Ambassador, Emilia Fox, made the evening evermore special. It was a pleasure for The Gro Company to be part of these group celebrations.

    Gallery Update 2, Emilia Fox at ‘A Journey Shared’ private event – 26th November 2013

    Added a few additional HQ photos from the private event Emilia attended last week. Thanks Helen at jrhysmeyers.com for these gorgeous photos!

    Downton Abbey stars to fill in as waiters for charity – 1st Dec

    Stars of hit period drama DOWNTON ABBEY will be filling in as serving staff at upmarket London restaurant The Ivy on Sunday (01Dec13) in a bid to raise money for charity.

    Actors Laura Carmichael, Jim Carter and Brendan Coyle will join writer Julian Fellowes to serve diners at the event organised by their co-star Samantha Bond.

    Guests will pay £150-a-head for the privilege of being waited on by stars including Emilia Fox, Maureen Lipman and Imelda Staunton.

    Carmichael had the chance to practice her serving skills during the filming of an adaptation of Madame Bovary, in which she plays a servant, and she tells the London Evening Standard, “All that bobbing – I’m very versatile.”

    The money raised at the event will be donated to Acting for Others, a group of charities working with ill, injured or elderly actors and backstage staff.

    Bond says, “The thing about our industry is when life is good it’s very good and when life is bad, it’s hateful. If you’re unable to work there’s no back-up.”

    Well-known women take on historical roles in artist’s show

    She Should Have Known Better is a new series of work by artist Alice Instone on show at the former home of the writer Henry James – Lamb House, Rye (now owned by the National Trust) in December 2013.

    Instone’s highly charged paintings of women draw on James’ themes of freedom and transgression to showcase women who broke the rules.

    A number of well known women have sat as James’ heroines or notorious women from history; including Helen McCrory, Charlotte Church, Claudia Winkleman, Emma Freud, Jo Wood, Emilia Fox, Alice Temperley, Lola Lennox and Nicole Farhi.

    Emilia Fox as Marie Antoinette by Alice Instone

    Alice said: “James wrote about women who were constrained by society’s rules and who were punished for breaking them.

    “I’m interested in how we still punish women who don’t fit our expectations, whether in the press or in daily life.

    “Lamb House is fantastically atmospheric and a beautiful building so I hope the work also reflects this.

    “James wrote, ‘we work in the dark’, something that has comforted me when I didn’t know what I was doing, or felt uncertain whether to risk ruining a painting with an experiment!”

    Actress Emilia Fox said of Alice Instone: “I am in total awe of her work and the incredible women she has used to inspire her, both historically and present day.”

    Television presenter Claudia Winkleman said: “I loved sitting for Alice. We drank tea and talked about Theda Bara and I wore a fake fur stole. It was win win.”

    Alice Instone is an English artist who makes paintings of women concerned with gender and power, frequently depicting in?uential or well known public ?gures from Annie Lennox to Cherie Blair.

    Her work is held in several public collections and her solo exhibitions include the House of Commons, the Royal Society of Arts, Northampton Museum, Chanel Head Of?ce, More London Place, The Cob Gallery and The House of St Barnabas in Soho.

    Her work draws attention to how we consume images of women and the female archetype and historical stories and images are appropriated as part of the artist’s enquiry into the potency of certain images.

    Instone was selected as a Woman of Achievement by Woman of the Year and regularly

    features in the press, radio and television.

    She lives in the Isle of Oxney with her husband and two children.

    Lamb House is in West Street, Rye. Visit nationaltrust.org.uk.
