A memorial concert for Sir Nicholas Winton will take place at St John’s Smith Square in London tomorrow (Friday) evening.
It will feature international performers and readings from Jason Isaacs, Rupert Graves and music from Alexander Baillie.
Money raised will go towards child refugees today.
Other performers include Karin Lechner and Natasha Binder, who are descendants of some of the children saved by Sir Nicholas on the eve of the Second World War.
Rupert Graves said: “I’m looking forward to the memorial concert on May 20 to honour Nicholas Winton, who was the rarest of people; a real life, humble hero.”
Students from Cellosound Birmingham will also be performing.
The concert will celebrate the life of Sir Nicholas, who died in July last year aged 106.
Tickets cost £18.
