How it works

Simply look at the list of actors below and the reading they have filmed – select your chosen actor and complete the form with your details and a donation of £10.00. The special filmed recording will be sent to you on Saturday 13th February for you to forward onto your loved one, maybe adding any special message should you wish. If you are not familiar with some of the pieces – they can all be read here. 

There are beautiful love readings for lovers but also for those you are just missing and can’t hug right now, Mel ( from Bake -Off fame) reads The Owl and The Pussy Cat which is very funny and children will love, Shappi Khorsandi reads with her cat and Luke Wright reads one of his own fabulous poems.

Barb Jungr is singing two versions of ‘ Black is The Colour of My True Love’s Hair’
