West End shows will come together to sell props, photos and posters as part of a new event to raise money for charity Acting for Others.

The West End Flea Market will take place on May 18 at St Paul’s Church in Covent Garden, and will also include a competition to find the best-dressed stall.

There will also be signings and auctions at the event, which is free and open from 10.45am to 1pm.

Acting for Others represents 15 UK theatrical and welfare charities.

It is understood that West End Bake Off, which previously raised funds for Acting for Others, is also planning an event in 2019.
