ONE of the country’s leading actresses Imelda Staunton has urged a ban on eating and drinking in theatres.

The Guardian quotes an interview she gave to the listings magazine Radio Times in which she called on people to give the performance their full attention.

Staunton, who starred in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Vera Drake, added: “I don’t know why people can’t engage in just one thing. I don’t understand this obsession with having to eat or drink something at every moment of the day.”
