Amy Nuttall to perform ‘Thank You Mother’ at the Smiley Charity Film Awards

Our High Profile Supporter actress Amy Nuttall, who is most recently known for her appearance in Mr Bates vs The Post Office and well-known for her role in critically acclaimed hit television series, Downton Abbey, has released a new track ‘Thank You Mother’

What ‘Thank You Mother’ means to Amy Nuttall

After tragically losing her beloved mum to a glioblastoma brain tumour last October, Amy has teamed up with The Brain Tumour Charity to raise vital awareness of brain tumours. As part of this, Amy released the song, ‘Thank You Mother’, on Mother’s Day.  

‘Thank You Mother’ was written by an Irish songwriter called John Hurley. Amy was first introduced to the track in her early twenties, when she was asked to perform it for Gloria Hunniford. 

The song is a tribute to Amy’s mother after Amy became her full time carer alongside her sister and dad. The track has huge significance to Amy and her family as they played it to her mum in her final days.  

Performing ‘Thank You Mother’ at the Smiley Charity Film Awards

The Smiley Charity Film Awards is a ceremony celebrating the success of film in fundraising, encouraging donations for all registered charities, and increasing the exposure of charity films.

The seventh iteration of the Smiley Charity Film Awards will take place on the 20th March 2024, the United Nations International Day of Happiness at The Odeon Luxe in Leicester Square, London. 

And, Amy has been asked to sing’ this song ‘Thank You Mother’ at the 2024 awards ceremony. It’s an excellent way to remember her mum and raise awareness in what will surely be a moving performance.

We are delighted to have Amy Nuttall perform her new song in memory of her mother and supporting The Brain Tumour Charity.

The Smiley Charity Film Awards provides a powerful platform for UK and international charities to expand their reach as well as recognizing and celebrating their outstanding contributions through film.

Amy’s upcoming performance of her new song embodies the spirit of the awards perfectly.

Amy is no stranger to live performance

Amy’s love of acting started in her early years. She performed lead roles with the National Youth Music Theatre in her early teens and at just 16 she was credited as the youngest ever understudy for the lead role in The Phantom of the Opera.   

A hugely accomplished singer, she has sung at The Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall in London and at Old Trafford.  She released a debut album as a classical vocalist, Best Days, in 2005 and it was nominated for a Classic Brit Award in 2006.   

Her screen career has gone from strength to strength with acclaimed roles in Emmerdale, Downton Abbey, and the recent highly praised Mr. Bates vs the Post Office.   

She continues to tread the theatrical boards as well and past roles have seen her perform both in the West End and nationally in the likes of My Fair Lady, Cabaret, Guys and Dolls, All My Sons, Noises Off and many others, as well as starring in BBC radio 4 dramas.
