Ian McKellen On Stage

With Tolkien, Shakespeare, others…and you!

3 February 2019 - 7:30pm

A message from Ian McKellen:

“I’m celebrating my 80th birthday by touring a new solo show to theatres I know well and a few that I don’t. The show starts with Gandalf and will probably end with an invitation to act with me on stage. In-between there will be anecdotes and acting. I open at my local arts centre in January and end up by August in Orkney.”
