Sixth Form Meet Sir Ian and Sir Harry

In 2010, Sir Ian McKellen was performing in Waiting For Godot at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket. A group of  Sixth Form students went to London watch the performance and afterwards went backstage to meet Sir Ian and the rest of the cast! They were joined by another Old Boy, Nobel Prize-winning scientist Sir Harry Kroto, who was at Bolton School at the same time as Sir Ian.
