This year marks the centenary of the reigning monarch who is patron, starting with King George V in 1921.
Hosted by Alan Carr, the evening will include appearances from Ed Sheeran, Sir Rod Stewart, the cast of Matilda The Musical, Anne Marie, Years and Years, the cast of Cirque du Soleil, James Blunt, the cast of Moulin Rouge The Musical and the German The Messoudi Brothers.

In 2021, the Royal Variety Charity has continued to support members of the entertainment industry with its own nationwide grant scheme, helping many people who have found the past year to be a particularly difficult one.
The Royal Variety Charity also continues to manage its own care home, Brinsworth House in Twickenham.
The nursing and caring staff have ensured that the home remains a place of safety, peace and happiness for retired members of the entertainment industry.
The residents are now once again showing off their own theatrical skills and even producing and performing their own stage shows.
On the evening, Their Royal Highnesses will meet a number of performers, as well as Royal Variety Charity and ITV executives, both before and after the show.
