Sir Ian McKellen’s appearance at Keswick’s Theatre by the Lake on August 20 raised more than £19,300 for the theatre and took place the day after TBTL’s 20th birthday.

The show was part of his 80th birthday tour which seen him perform his solo show on 80 stages across the UK, with the aim of raising funds for host theatres.

Proceeds from the evening, raised through TBTL’s ticket and programme sales and post-show donations, will go towards the theatre’s work with young people.
