Steve Knightley - All at Sea
In
early 2014 Steve Knightley set out on his 160 date Grow your own Gig tour of rural village halls. Once described by the Times as the “gravel voiced spokesman of the rural poor” and possessing a vast repertoire of songs about those who live and work in the countryside, this journey finally came to an end in September 2015.  In 2016 he has decided to turn his attention to Maritime venues around the shoreline of England and Wales. The ‘All at Sea’ tour will find him playing in seaside halls, an Elizabethan Fort, on boats and in a rich variety of performing spaces all within sight of the waves and the tide. As Steve says “As a West country songwriter I have written so many songs of seafarers and wreckers, travellers and traders, pirates and smugglers. Now I‘m going to be able to sing them with the sound of the sea in the distance - I can’t wait!”  Doors and Bar opens:  6.30pm  Show starts: 7.30pm  Full Price:  £16.00  TheatreFriends discount available www.marinetheatre.com

 

 

 

Thursday 4th February

 

Storytelling in The Stage Door Bar: Debs Newbold - Medieval Jests from the Bawdy Bardess

An Up Close and Personal Storytelling performance in the Stage Door Bar.

Debs Newbold is an acclaimed storyteller. With a quick wit, eloquent physicality and a bewitching way with an audience, Debs’ work has been hailed as “masterful verbal cinema”.  She weaves for us a set of three frollicksome tales from Merrie Olde Europe; one English, one Italian, one French...and all very funny.  Roll up one and all for a rollicking evening of medieval banter, bawdiness and belly laughs. Chaucer, Bocaccio and the anonymous writer of a fruity French geste get a reworking that has audiences clutching their sides and reaching for The Canterbury Tales. This is one of Debs’ newest and most instantly popular sets. Strictly for grown-ups.  Bar opens: 7pm  Onstage: 7.30pm  Running time: 70 mins (approx)   Age Suitability: 17+   All tickets: £12 Strictly limited tickets available  TheatreFriends discount available www.marinetheatre.com

 

 
Friday February 5th

Coffee Morning
Lyme Regis Society 10.30am at the Alexandra Hotel 
www.lymeregissociety.org.uk

 


Concert Theatre: The Tenant of Wildfell Hall
Concert Theatre interweaves Anne Brontë’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall with Scriabin’s 24 Preludes, Mozart’s sonata for piano and violin K.378, and Brahms’ Rhapsody Op. 79. The classical music becomes the world, the time, the emotions, and the characters from Brontë's classic story. Collision between music and spoken text gives birth to a new dramatic language on stage. Through adapting the story into a modern setting and contemporary English language, we wish to emphasise the relevance of feminism in Brontë's writing to today's society. Time:  3.00pm  Free  R&D by the Sea is supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. www.marinetheatre.com

Friday Nights at the Marine Swing Commanders
The Swing Commanders are a vibrant Lancashire quintet whose mission is to promote sophisticated harmonies, hot solos and pretty dresses.   They take the best mid twentieth century songs, from Glenn Miller to the singing cowboys of old, and give them a high energy makeover, with mid-song instrument swaps and high jinx humour. The band play theatres and festivals throughout Europe, and in 2015 headlined the Legends of Western Swing festival in Wichita Falls, Texas. If you enjoy vintage style, lively music and good old fashioned entertainment, you’ll have a ball with The Swing Commanders!  Bar open: 5.00pm  Show starts:  8.00pm  Running time:  2 hrs (approx)  All tickets £10 www.marinetheatre.com

How do new housing developments affect our local community?
What are new housing developments doing to Lyme? How do they affect the town’s physical and social environment? What benefits can they bring and what harm may they do?  Local group Turn Lyme Green is hosting – at The Royal Lion Hotel in Broad Street – an informal discussion of such issues relating to the environmental impact of development in our small town. Special guests are Councillor Anita Williams who chairs the Town Council’s Planning Committee; Peter Coe, volunteer Planning and Conservation Officer for the Lyme Regis Society which has as its charitable objective ‘to safeguard the natural and architectural beauty of Lyme Regis and its neighbourhood’; Wendy Davies from the Lyme Forward Housing Group, currently reviving the possibility of an affordable homes development by the Medical Centre; and Adrian Ragbourne, coordinator of Lyme Forward with a special interest in community energy opportunities.  Do come along to have your own say, perhaps to hear how you can support efforts to ensure only beneficial growth occurs in Lyme, and to meet others with the same wish. Buy a drink at the bar from 7.15, and then find your way upstairs to the Blue Room for the meeting starting at 7.30.

Belmont Open Days 
This fine 18th-century maritime villa in Lyme Regis once belonged to the remarkable businesswoman, Mrs Eleanor Coade who devised a formula to mass produce architectural embellishments. More recently  Belmont was home to world-famous author, John Fowles, author of The Magus and The French Lieutenant's Woman. While keeping John Fowles's literary presence through the books in the house, we have restored Belmont to its appearance in Mrs Coade’s day.  In the garden there is a Victorian observatory tower, with hatch and revolving roof built by the remarkable Dr. Bangay. Most of the long garden is left wild (Fowles was a keen naturalist) and it tumbles down to the esplanade, with a pebble beach and the Cobb beyond. 10am to 4pm No booking required.

 Mark Steel - Who do you think I am?
I
t never really bothered me that I’d never met my mum. It never occurred to me I needed to meet her to ‘find out who I was’, as it didn’t seem likely I’d discover I was someone different to who I thought I was. But after the birth of my own son, I realised it’s quite an event to have a child, and she may well remember giving birth to me, and maybe even the adoption.  See Mark Steel in his newest stand up show, a surprising and enthralling personal story told with aplomb.  Mark is a regular writer and presenter on BBC Radio 4, BBC2, and has appeared as a regular on BBC One’s Have I Got News for You. He’s also written several books, and he writes a weekly column for The Independent for which he won Columnist of the Year at the Press Awards in 2015.  8.00pm  Running time:  100 mins (approx)  All tickets: £15.00 TheatreFriends discount available www.marinetheatre.com
