An Audience with Arsène Wenger OBE and David Dein MBE at The London Palladium on Monday 19 April 2021 has been rescheduled to Monday 8 November 2021.
Postponing an event of this size and importance is never an easy to decision to make. However, it has become clear that following the Prime Minister’s recent announcement that lockdown restrictions will not be lifted enough for the event to be run as planned in April 2021. The event organisers would have to disappoint a large portion of ticket holders in order to maintain social distancing to be able to run the event in the near term, and this is not in anyone’s best interests.
The new date of Monday 8 November 2021 reflects the growing confidence that, due to the UK’s fantastic progress in vaccinating its adult population, by the end of the year events of this size will be able to run as planned. This will mean that all ticket holders will be able to join what promises to be a phenomenal evening of football conversation in aid of the Twinning Project charity.
David Dein MBE, former Vice Chairman of Arsenal Football Club and the Football Association, and founder of the Twinning Project says, “While we are disappointed to have to postpone the event once again, we look ahead to the November date with a real sense of optimism, as the roadmap to normality has never been clearer. The prospect of welcoming you all to The London Palladium fills Arsène, myself and all our special guests with overwhelming excitement, and we will be working tirelessly over the coming months to ensure that it is an evening to remember.”
Original seats will remain valid for the new date. If you have any queries, please contact your point of purchase.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. We look forward to seeing you in November 2021.
LW Theatres, on behalf of An Audience with Arsène Wenger OBE and David Dein MBE
Arsène Wenger OBE, Arsenal’s most successful manager and now FIFA’s Chief of Global Football Development, and David Dein MBE, former Vice Chairman of Arsenal and the Football Association who was the man who brought Arsène to the Gunners, are taking to the stage for a one-off evening on their time at the club, the state of football today and where they think it will go in the future.
Dein and Wenger will discuss how the Frenchman went from “Arsène Who?” to one of English football’s greatest pioneers and how together they shaped the most successful period in Arsenal’s history. The conversation will leave no stone unturned, covering the title wins, high-profile transfers and star players that defined their time in North London.
With Dein having been the leading figure in the formation of the Premier League and Wenger’s new role at FIFA, the two will also be sure to discuss the most pressing issues of the modern game, including VAR, financial fair play and the offside rule.
The night will be hosted by Ian Wright MBE and Alex Scott MBE and TV star Dermot O’Leary will be asking the questions. There will be many special celebrity guests including some of Arsenal’s “Invincibles” squad. The audience will have the opportunity to engage in a Q&A with Arsène and David.
The night is being organised in support of the Twinning Project Charity ( www.twinningproject.org ), which twins professional football clubs with their local prison. It focuses on reducing reoffending rates in the UK by delivering coaching and referees’ courses to offenders, giving them the necessary lifestyle skills to succeed on the outside.
During the event there will be an auction of once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
