7.30 LymeForward Workshop at Woodmead Halls.
Led by the Coastal Community Team, to gather and discuss ideas that might become part of a major CCT bid to the Coastal Communities Fund this autumn. Workshop participants will be sustained with food prepared in the new Woodmead Halls kitchen by members of LymeForward's cookery class and Altogether Group under the guidance of chef Chris Onions from The Old Dairy Kitchen at Trill Farm. 

Workshop attendance is limited by practical considerations and food supply. Invitations have been issued; if not invited you may apply to Adrian Ragbourne (adrian@lymeforward.co.uk) in case spaces are available. The suggestions collected at this workshop will be shared publicly, and more opportunities will be given for everyone to add ideas and to comment on those initially put forward.

Adventures at the Seaside by DEIRDRE DEE  
How did the great British Seaside tradition begin? Was it with George III in Weymouth? Or the Prince Regent in Brighton? Or Queen Victoria, who "Drove down to the beach with my maid and went into a bathing machine where I undressed and bathed in the sea for the first time in my life, I thought it delightful …"? Or the 1841 London to Brighton railway opening up the coast to the East End of London? Or …? 

Deirdre's entertaining presentation will reveal all (or, at least, a modest amount) about our love of the seaside, coming right up to date by examining how seaside resorts are continually re-inventing themselves to stay alive in the 21st Century.

A professional actress and producer before becoming Managing Director of a corporate events company, Deirdre's career spans the arts, coaching and mentoring, the charity sector and the corporate world. Woodmead Hall  opens 10.00 - 10.40am for coffee etc.  Talk11.00am - 12 noon. Non members welcome - suggested donation £2.  See Lyme Regis U3A.

Black Ven Poetry Club Workshop
  Six monthly live poetry workshops exploring ways of harnessing creativity to write poems, speak poems, and connect with the nature and elements outside.  Anyone who is interested in how to develop ideas into poetry on the page, and on the stage. Join us if you’re interested in thinking about language, articulation, story, speaking out and how. The workshops are aimed at poets, dreamers and thinkers. All abilities welcome.  The workshops will involve: -
  Introducing themes to engage with nature and develop tools to write with, plus broad guidance and discussion about different approaches to composition and style;  -  Readings of relevant literature, and poetry;   -  Deep Listening and meditation;  -  A 15-minute outdoor learning observation exercise (outside and in silence);  -   Sharing our experiences from our 15 minutes and finding threads to work into;  -  Guest teachings on how to stand up and offer your poems to others from theatre performance, music and acting specialists to teach breathing, physicality, microphone technique and voice control using basic exercises.  You will probably not come away with a poem or finished piece at the end of the workshop, but tools to work with between the sessions. You may find that the teachings allow release for new thinking in other areas, or being able to tap into creativity more deeply in any artform.  Price: £10 or £6 if you are a regular face at the local Apothecary or Vittals & Verse open mic poetry nights.   12 - 2pm Marine Theatre Bar, Marine Theatre, Lyme Regis DT73QB   Contact: blackvenpress@gmail.com or sarah@marinetheatre.com

The Red Devils, based at Netheravon Airfield on Salisbury Plain, are a team of 15, all of whom have seen active service in the Falklands, Northern Ireland, Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan or Iraq.  They are widely acknowledged as among the best display parachutists in the world, and carry out spectacular shows at public events worldwide, promoting the British Army and the Parachute Regiment, known as ‘The Paras’.

A classic Red Devils display will see up to ten team members jumping from an altitude of 10,000ft.  Trailing smoke to demonstrate their speed and movement, the highly skilled skydivers will freefall at speeds up to 120mph before opening their parachutes. Then they will demonstrate breath-taking high-speed ‘swoop’ landings and spectacular ‘canopy formations’.  A commentary will keep everyone informed and the skydivers will be available afterwards to meet spectators.   2.30pm  Full details in the Lifeboat Week Programme available from the Lifeboat shop and many other outlets in Town and at Charmouth.

EARTH PULSE
22nd - 30th July 2017

Preview:  2-4pm Saturday 22nd July  Exhibition to be opened by Stephen Batty ( Everyone welcome to attend ) An exhibition of artwork by members of Wessex Contemporary Arts (WESCA) inspired by the energies, movements and events that surround us.  Among those exhibiting are:

 Jane Burden, in hand-built ceramic bowls and mixed-media pieces, captures the dynamic of movement within the earth and reveals with texture, colour and sensual folds, its sculptural effect on the landscape .

 Helen Simpson’s large scale paintings allow us to feel the underlying energy within the sinuous and sensuous delicacy of leaf and petal.

Terri Hogan’s paintings are about the coast particularly that of the Penwith and the Lizard, they are informed by the power of the Ocean as it meets the land and are about capturing a moment in time, on a particular day and in a particular place.

 Justin Orwin :  Photographs suggesting the environment in which we live and the delicate relationships therein.

 "Youll find me on the edge; the meeting of land and sea is my  playground of inspiration where the continual processes of destruction and recreation drive me to express in my paintings the layered, gritty archaeology of these ancient surfaces. Rita Brown

 Environmental concerns occupy Marilyn Rose's current work; sculptures created mainly in porcelain exploring ideas of a fragile fragmented world on the edge of chaos.

 

Jindra Jehu's recent work stems from an interest in what lies in the deepest of Ocean trenches. Where hydrothermic vents, deep sea geysers, spew gases and heat and generate chimneys, some as tall as 18stories. And where the process of Chemosynthesis results in individual, isolated ecosystems.

 

Jeremy Marshall describes his paintings as "Energy fields. Cyclic pulsing of tides, seasons and life forms."

 

“I strive to achieve large bowls and sculptural forms in stoneware and raku with a certain timeless quality….” Elizabeth Adam

 

In this exhibition Shirley Cousins’ work is about “Migration”: age old, but now so visible,  speaking of the fragility of life on  a fragile earth.

 

  Eype Centre for the Arts, St. Peter’s  Chapel, Mount Lane, Eype, BRIDPORT, Dorset DT6 6AR 11am- 4pm daily

the solitary chapel on the hill above the tiny seaside village of  Eype, which now serves as a Church and Centre of the Arts with it’s wonderful views along the Jurassic Coast,  is well worth a visit. The work by members of Wessex Contemporary Arts reflects the energy and movement of the natural world we inhabit and which we can so easily take for granted. You will be able to purchase a cup of tea or coffee, enjoy the serenity and cool of the place as you look at the exhibition.

CROSSING THE LINE
28 July-9 August


Seven artists from Dorset and Devon—Jennie Hanrahan, Brendon Murless, Caroline Parrott, Barbara Green, Nicola Dennis, Jeanne Goodridge and Sue Calder—are taking part in this contemporary craft and art exhibition, showcasing their skills in ceramics, sculpture, metalworking, printing, painting, illustration, photography and textiles and skillfully exploring questions about the supposed ‘line’ between craft and art.

The Malthouse Gallery, The Town Mill, Mill Lane, Lyme Regis DT7 3PU. Open daily 10.30am-4.30pm. Free admission.www.townmillarts.co.uk

LIFE IN COLOUR

Good news film fans

The Marine Theatre has a sizzling summer season of brand new popular films on offer this summer.

What better way to escape the chaos of the world than to meet friends and have a drink in the bar then watch a great movie on the big screen?

Following the tragic fire at the Regent Cinema last Spring, the Marine Theatre, in collaboration with Scott Cinema and the Lyme Regis Film Society, has stepped up to bring film to the community of Lyme Regis.

The theatre has brand new cinema equipment including a projector and fabulous 15ft screen kindly donated by the Lyme Regis Film Society, who show regular films at the theatre during the winter months.

There will be drinks, alcohol and snacks on sale from The Marine Bar and Dottie’s Kitchen Cafe one hour before and during all screenings.

You can buy tickets for our films on the door half an hour before each screening.

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!

FOSSIL WALKS IN JULY

Get Fossiling on the Jurassic Coast! Join one of Lyme Regis’s famous fossil walks along this historic stretch of Dorset coast with Geologist Paddy Howe and Marine Biologist Chris Andrew. Some families return time and again to search with Paddy and Chris among the sand and rocks for fossils that have been washed down onto the beach after 190 million years. For adults and children alike, it’s an unforgettable experience.
