McKellen fans go to the ballot

Published: 12 January 2019

Keswick’s Theatre by the Lake is holding a ballot for tickets for Ian McKellen On Stage—McKellen’s solo show which will play on 80 stages across the UK, including the Main House at Theatre by the Lake on August 20.

The ballot, which can be entered online from the theatre’s web site or via a paper form which can be picked up from the box office or downloaded from the web site, will be open for two weeks from January 28 to February 11, with entrants being drawn following the closing date.

In a move to recognise the loyalty of the theatre’s regular audience and supporters, a third of available seats will be weighted towards regular attenders, supporters and Friends of Theatre by the Lake.
