The Space in the Isle of Dogs is doing some much-needed fundraising and has a unique proposition to put to potential donors thanks to the fact that one of its patrons is a well-known star of stage and screen - Sir Ian McKellen.

The Space is part of a national initiative launched by the Theatres Trust to prevent the permanent closure of hundreds of UK theatres.

And Sir Ian has pledged an online Q and A as part of the rewards on offer - everyone who donates will be entered into a draw for tickets.

Artistic Director, Adam Hemming reveals the other packages on offer ...

"We wanted to encourage our supporters to buy rewards for other people so we have sponsorship packages for a range of theatre-makers.

So far, we've had pledges for 4 playwrights, 3 actors, 2 theatre companies, 2 residencies, a theatre practitioner and an online workshop course for up to 30 people.

Those beneficiaries will receive bespoke development support from members of our board of trustees, staff and artistic associates.

The most popular reward so far has been my 8-year-old daughter's doodles that she creates live during our weekly Facebook broadcasts."

The Crowdfunder project will be live until 6 October - make your pledges and get more details about the many rewards on offer here.
