THE mighty film, television and stage actor Sir Derek Jacobi joined another stalwart of the acting world at The Angles Theatre in Wisbech on Sunday, when they entertained a capacity audience for two hours.

Sir Derek was joined on stage with his close friend and fellow Angles patron Michael Burrell, helping to raise almost £2,000 of desperately needed funds for the theatre.

The two patrons had agreed to appear free of charge, and the sell-out night was boosted by a raffle for personally signed posters and joint signings of Mr Burrell’s book of poems, Eyeliner.

The pair were supported by young Cambridgeshire singer songwriter Bondy.
