A rare opportunity to talk to Barry Humphries, the man behind Dame Edna Everage, is being offered by the New Wimbledon Theatre.

The unique post-show Question and Answer session will be hosted by Eric Potts - writer, director and co-star of Dick Whittington, now running at the theatre.

Before going on to create such legendary characters as Sir Les Paterson and Dame Edna, Barry Humphries (right) appeared at the Wimbledon theatre in Lionel Bart's Oliver! in 1960 prior to its world premier.

The Q&A will take place in the stalls following a short intermission after the panto performance at 7pm on Tuesday January 10.

And Dame Edna's run in the panto ends on Sunday January 15.
