The Dukes are delighted to announce our “Gandalf’s Staff Lottery”, a chance for you to win a unique piece of Dukes park show history – complete with an exciting addition.
The lucky winner will receive the handcrafted staff used in our award-winning 2016 production of The Hobbit. And, to make it even more special, the staff has been signed by Gandalf himself – Sir Ian McKellen, star of the smash-hit Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies.
As well as the staff, the winner will also receive a framed photograph of the moment Sir Ian signed the staff during his visit to The Dukes earlier this year.
All proceeds from the lottery will go towards our park show fundraising campaign, which aims to raise £85,000 to purchase new technical equipment to secure the long term future of the ‘play in the park’.
Tickets for the lottery cost £5 and can be purchased online here, by calling our box office on 01524 598500 or by popping in. The lottery is open now and tickets can be purchased until Wednesday 18 September, with the winner being announced on Hobbit Day on Sunday 22 September.
