Internationally renowned actors are speaking about their careers as part of an intimate event.

Toby Jones and Imelda Staunton were invited to appear as guests for The Space, a series of interviews and questions and answer sessions being held on Brighton's Palace Pier.

Toby, star of Mr Bates vs The Post Office, appears tonight at what is a sold-out event.

Toby Jones's performance as Alan Bates in the ITV series sparked a national conversation about the Horizon Post Office scandal where sub-postmasters were wrongly prosecuted for theft and fraud due to a faulty computer system.

He has also starred in dozens of hit TV shows and films including Sherlock, Captain America and The Hunger Games.

He also voiced Dobby in the Harry Potter films in which Imelda Staunton played Dolores Umbridge.

Her long string of credits include her role as Queen Elizabeth II in the last two seasons of The Crown.

The pair will be appearing in separate events as part of The Space, an arts event featuring interviews with high-profile musicians, actors and creative professionals.

Previous guests include Mark Gatiss, Fatboy Slim and Noddy Holder from Slade.

The events, run by Wayne Imms, previously took place at the Latest TV Bar before the site was closed this week.

The events will now run from Horatio’s Bar on Brighton Palace Pier.

Imelda Staunton will be appearing as part of The Space on Wednesday, April 10.
