NEIL MAYA'S CARTOON JAZZ
The music is instantly recognisable, and you'll be singing along in no time! Whether you're 9 or 90, it'll put a smile on your face. Yes, it’s jazz - but not as we know it!  Neil Maya's Cartoon Jazz uses music to evoke the drama, mood and characters of our best loved cartoons.  Pink Panther conjures up the comic blunderings of Inspector Clouseau.  Top Cat echoes the crazy slapstick of Sgt Bilko.  And Homer Simpson’s pretentions are evident in his version of The Flintstones theme song.
 Neil Maya Quartet is no stranger to Jazz Jurassica. In 2019 he performed his popular Brubeck Project to a sell-out brunch at the Royal Lion Hotel. In 2021 we featured his 1959 show. Cartoon Jazz is his latest project. 

Family fun at its best - all accompanied under 14s admitted for free.
Band line up:  Neil Maya (saxophone), Tom Ball (pianist), Kevin Sanders (bass) and Gary Evans (drums).  11.30am Marine Theatre, Lyme Regis www.marinetheatre.com

Lyme and the Sea, our Community Play

In Lyme Regis, there's a strong tradition of Community Plays that dates back to the 1970s. In recent years, successes include ‘Tempest of Lyme’, ‘Monmouth: A West Country Rebellion’ and ‘Are you Going to the Marine?’ .

Screenwriter and Marine patron Andrew Rattenbury has done it again: Lyme and the Sea is a celebration of our town's enduring relationship with the sea - sometimes joyful and sometimes tragic.

With dozens of local people working hard to produce the show, it promises to be a magnificent community event for all. We hope you can join us. £8.00 adults | £4.00 under 18s | 10% discount for members  www.marinetheatre.com

Boat Building Academy Boat Launch 
  Just eight months ago this Class  was learning how to sharpen chisels and make dovetail joints.  Now they’re making boats as part of their training

At 2.30pm(ish) the boats will be led from the Academy’s workshops on Monmouth Beach to Lyme Regis Harbour. Champagne corks will pop  and each boat will be launched into the water for the first time. The launch will celebrate the achievements of the class, the end of their training at the Academy and the start of their new lives as boat builders. the slipway  - This is an approximate time due to the scale of the event.  more info.. see right

Exhibitions
 

Waterline 2022
 

Abstract Photos by Lois Wakeman and Tricia Scott
 

26 April until 12 June

Rotunda Gallery, Lyme Regis Museum
 

The second in a long-term collaboration between two like-minded artists, Tricia Scott and Lois Wakeman, this fascinating exhibition of contemporary abstract photography focuses on the weathered and textured surfaces of boats.   Both photographers like to look for things that many people would walk past, or over, unseeing.  Living by the coast, seaside subjects naturally suggested themselves.  Visitors are invited to lose themselves in imaginary scenes created by peeling paint, corrosion and worn wood and to admire the surprising patterns revealed when the boats are hauled out of water for the winter.  Intrigued by the abstract and painterly nature of the photos, people at previous shows have enjoyed reading their own interpretation into them. “Are you sure these aren’t paintings?” is a common reaction.
 

Waterline 2022 is open Tuesdays through Saturdays, 10.00-17.00 and Sundays 10.00-16.00, admission fees to Museum apply and for further information, please visit www.lymeregismuseum.co.uk

Boat Building Academy
student boat launch Lyme Regis Harbour

 

The end of the 38 week Boat Building Course. Students will walk their boats down to Lyme Regis harbour where they will be launched for the first time. The class have completed their training and the day marks the start of their lives as boat builders.

Yvonne Green, Principal of the Academy, says, ‘I’m confident that the students wishing to work in the marine industry will easily find employment. We have an excellent relationship with employers and students join our growing Graduates’ Network which is regularly updated with jobs and opportunities. There is a skills shortage in boat building, which is a thriving industry’.

After a few words from Commander Tim Gedge, a Director of the Academy, the boats will launch one by one into the water. The Academy would be delighted if you would like to join them to celebrate the achievements of the students

Read about where Academy Graduates go on to work, their profiles, photographic build diaries and Graduate case studies, see the Academy’s website at:   www.boatbuildingacademy.com

 

WALKS and TOURS

Do take advice about safe tide times before setting off for more than fifteen minutes hike without a guide, along our beautiful beaches: - what appears to be an easy bit of ground to scramble over is more likely to be a treacherous mud slide - don't take a chance!
