Dame Judi Takes Part in Anti-War Concert

Dame Judi Dench appeared on stage on Sunday night as part of an anti-war concert and belted out "Cabaret" - 35 years after she first starred in the musical.

Die Another Day star Dame Judi won roars of approval from the audience as she threw herself into the number. Dame Judi, 68, says, "I feel very strongly about the war. I think there are other ways of going about things. I suppose my generation is the last that remembers the Second World War. And I am so happy that so many people came out tonight."

Also participating was The Lord Of The Rings actor Sir Ian McKellan, who read Suicide In The Trenches by First World War poet Siegfried Sassoon.

The London Concert For Peace was held in the capital's Theatre Royal Drury Lane and drew a 1,200 strong audience.
