Ian McKellen On StageMost people think about putting their feet up at the age of 80 but Ian McKellen, star of stage and legend on screen celebrates his 80th birthday with an 80-date, 8-month country wide tour. In London, alone, he's appearing on 20 dates at theatres and arts centres across the city and, what's more, all the profits will be donated to each theatre's charitable projects or restoration funds. His impromptu solo show last year - now the stuff of legend - treated theatre goers to "a bit of Gandalf and a couple of Shakespeare speeches" when injury prevented him from performing King Lear. For this special 80th birthday tour you can expect more of the same as well as convivial conversation, anecdotes and a reflection on his life. It opens at his local arts centre, The Space, in January and ends in Orkney in August. London venues include the National Theatre, Young Vic, Bridge Theatre, Richmond Theatre, Above the Stag, Hampstead Theatre, Arts Theatre, Old Vic, Royal Court, The Queens Theatre, RADA (for students only), Donmar Warehouse, Questors Ealing, Lyric Hammersmith, Duke of York's Theatre and Theatre Royal Stratford East before one last blast at the National Theatre.

About The Bridge Theatre

What Nicholas Hytner did next: after 12 years as director of the National Theatre, the theatre chief is building a theatre from the ground up. Designed by Steve Tompkins and Roger Watts of Haworth Tompkins, winner of the 2014 Stirling Prize for architecture for the Everyman Theatre in Liverpool, the Bridge Theatre brings theatre into the 21st century, offering theatre-makers a platform to create adventurous new work, and giving audiences a modern 900-seat adaptable theatre - capable of staging traditional, in-the-round and promenade performances.
