The producer and actor looked dapper in a pair of black jeans, paired with a light blue shirt and black blazer to match.

Celebrating the life and hugely succesful career of Alan, the event was hosted by Mark Kermode and featured some of his most iconic moments on-screen and excerpts from his diaries.

Starting in the early ’90s, Alan wrote dozens of detailed handwritten journals - which have all been edited & condensed into a single volume to create the book Madly, Deeply: The Alan Rickman Diaries.
