Vanessa Redgrave, Oscar-winner for “Julia,” and Ralph Fiennes, Oscar-nominee for “Schindler’s List” and “The English Patient,” will lead fundraiser events in aid of London’s Freud museum.

Housed in the final home of the father of psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud, and his daughter Anna, a pioneer of child psychoanalysis, the museum receives no direct public funding and has incurred significant financial losses during the coronavirus pandemic. Both the fundraising events have been instigated and devised by Redgrave.
