HOLLYWOOD star Dominic West came home to Sheffield to treat fans to an intimate one-off performance of a new show.

The actor - who shot to fame in gritty American drama The Wire - took on the role of narrator at Upper Chapel, Surrey Street, alongside international solo pianist Lucy Parham.

The show was organised to raise funds for Helen’s Trust which supported the Sheffield-born actor’s mother Moya in her final days.

It helps sick people in Sheffield and North Derbyshire to pass away in their own homes.

Dominic said after the performance on Saturday night: “It has been a complete delight to come home to Sheffield and perform with Lucy for Helen’s Trust.

“The charity is extremely close to my heart, thanks to the support they gave my mother when she was dying.”

The work, by Lucy, was about the life of composer Claude Debussy.
