Judith Owen and Harry Shearer have gathered up their famous friends for the annual  ‘Christmas Without Tears’ fundraiser on 11 December 2020.

This will be the 15th year of the Christmas Without Tears Variety Charity live event. “The show started as a party in our home to try to comfort Judith, a Welsh woman prone to melancholia, who could not stand that the fact that Christmas in Southern California was about 78 degrees and sunny,” Harry Shearer says.

Over the years the event has raised money for Elton John’s Aids Foundation, Our Friends Place. West London Mission, Snow City Arts, The New Orleans Musicians Clinic among others.

This year the beneficiaries are:

  • NIVA (National Independent Venues Association – #SaveOurStages USA) 
  • The New Orleans Musicians Clinic (USA)
