Sarah Lancashire In The Spotlight

Tuesday, 14th July 2015

BAFTA Awardwinning actor, Sarah Lancashire will be talking about her career and answering questions from the audience at The Dukes this Friday.

Sarah, who is one of the Lancaster theatre’s Honorary Patrons, will be taking part in an Actor’s Studio during The Dukes Youth Forum Summer Takeover.

The event, which takes place from 4.30pm, will be hosted by the Youth Forum but is open to everyone. Tickets are £4 and can be booked by calling The Dukes box office on 01524 598500 or www.dukes-lancaster.org

Sarah, who rose to national television fame as Coronation Street barmaid Raquel in the 1990s, won a BAFTA Television Award for her role in Last Tango In Halifax last year and was recently BAFTA nominated for her performance in the gritty police drama, Happy Valley.

She’s among the starstudded cast of the new film version of Dad’s Army which will be released next year and appears alongside Anthony Hopkins and Ian McKellen in a BBC2 version of The Dresser later this year.

This will be Sarah’s second visit to The Dukes since she became an Honorary Patron in 2014. She will also attend a special reception in Lancaster’s Ashton Memorial before Friday’s performance of Oliver Twist in Williamson Park along with the theatre’s other two Honorary Patrons, Cherylee Houston and Christine Mackie.

The Actor’s Studio is a highlight of an exciting weekend of activities and events organised by The Dukes Youth Forum which also include films, drama, and music.

Throughout the weekend, there’s a bar menu inspired by the movies, featuring a popcorn stand and movie themed mocktails, and a fancy dress photo booth for red carpet pictures.

The Summer Take Over and The Dukes Youth Forum are examples of the theatre’s continued commitment to young people.
