Comic legend Eddie Izzard is performing a gig for one night only to raise money for a campaign to save a Chelsea estate.
In a week of campaigning for Scotland to stay in the UK, the actor, comedian and writer will turn his attentions on Friday (September 19) to the William Sutton Estate just behind the King’s Road which owners Affinity Sutton are planning to pull down .
The Labour Party supporter will be visiting the estate in the afternoon to meet residents who may lose their social housing before he performs at Leicester Square Theatre in the evening.
Campaigners from the Save The Sutton Estate crusade invited him to support them as they are worried most of the estate will be demolished and over 40 per cent of it will be replaced with a private gated block of luxury flats , ensuring many current residents will be pushed out of Chelsea.
Affinity Sutton claims this is not the case and the new buildings will be better for current residents who will be re-housed.
Eddie Izzard will be performing at the Save The Sutton Estate Benefit in Leicester Square Theatre in Leicester Place this Friday (September 19).
