Wellbeing of Women is delighted to invite you to join us for our first lunch in person since 2019, with Hollywood legend, Dame Joan Collins, on Monday 8th November 2021 at Fortnum and Mason.
Guests will enjoy a sparkling reception, followed by a delicious lunch in the beautiful Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon.
Eve Pollard OBE will talk to Dame Joan Collins about her new memoir, My Unapologetic Diaries. These uncensored diaries chart Dame Joan’s glamorous life from encounters with members of the Royal Family to honest insights of other celebrities at parties of dinners. The diaries are intimate and funny, and Joan pulls no punches.
The event will also provide an opportunity to raise funds, via a fabulous raffle and sales of Joan's book, for Wellbeing of Women’s vital work to save and change the lives of women, girls and babies through research, education, and advocacy.
We very much hope you will be able to join us for what promises to be a highly enjoyable and entertaining afternoon.
Dame Joan Collins is a legend of the screen and stage and best known for playing Alexa Carrington on long running television show Dynasty. She was recently back on our screens in Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story. She is also a best-selling author of seventeen books.

Returning to women’s titles she also launched Elle magazine in the US as its first editor-in-chief. Today, Eve is a regular reporter on BBC1’s The One Show.
