Theatre fund boost.

A gig by Father Ted legend and stand-up comic Michael Redmond raised almost pounds 800 for the Saltburn Theatre Building Fund.

A total of pounds 788 was raised by the show, featuring Redmond and MC James Harris at the theatre. Gig promoter Rob O'Connor, of media & PR service ten past eight, donated his profits of pounds 332, with the theatre's bar profits, hire fee, and a bucket collection making up the rest.

Rob said: "Michael was fantastic. People were stopping me in the street after the gig and saying he was the funniest comic they'd ever seen.

"Big thanks should go to all the local shops and businesses who helped out."

The Theatre's Building Fund was launched after the theft of lead from the community hall in March.
