Stephen Beresford's adaptation of Ingmar Bergman's classic film Fanny and Alexander had its opening night at the Old Vic in central London, and the show's cast was joined by a number of big names to mark the occasion.

Guests on the evening included Andrew Scott, Nigella Lawson, Adrian Lester, Jade Anouka and Timothy West.

The piece, which follows a family's decline over time, stars Penelope Wilton, Jonathan Slinger and Lolita Chakrabarti. Directed by Max Webster, critic Sarah Crompton described the piece as a "truly effective slice of theatre".

Fanny and Alexander runs at the Old Vic until 14 April.
