An Aberdeen theatre is to benefit from almost £20,000 following a performance by acting legend Sir Ian McKellen.
Sir Ian was in the Granite City last week as part of a tour to mark his 80th birthday.
The star, known for the Lord of the Rings and X-Men films, is performing at 80 theatres across the UK, with money from tickets sales being pumped back into the local communities.
As a result of last week’s show in Aberdeen, The Tivoli Theatre has today confirmed they will receive £19,491 which which will go towards improving access.
We are delighted to announce that the money raised from @IanMcKellen is £19491 and will go towards improving our access. A big thank you to #IanMckellen for your generosity and to everyone that came to the show, bought a programme and made a donation. A truly spectacular evening! pic.twitter.com/DcvL5lHBcF
