IAN MCKELLEN ON STAGE | WEDNESDAY 3 JULY 2019

With six Olivier Awards, a Tony, a Golden Globe, two Oscar nominations, four BAFTA nominations, and every major theatrical award, he is a true national treasure and widely regarded as one of the greatest stage and screen actors. 

Sir Ian McKellen has announced that he will appear on-stage at the Marine in July 2019 for a one-man show, which will be a fundraiser. 

Sir Ian explained the event “The show starts with Gandalf and will probably end with an invitation to act with me on stage. In-between there will be anecdotes and acting. Live theatre has always been thrilling to me, as an actor and in the audience.”

The solo show is part of the actor’s 80th birthday celebrations in selected theatres. The money raised from the event will go towards specific projects at the Marine. Sir Ian said “I’m delighted to be making my debut in Lyme Regis as part of the UK tour celebrating my 80th birthday... I’m pleased that all profits will support the youth theatre and help update the Marine’s dressing rooms. See you there, I hope!”

There is also a chance to buy front-row premium tickets to meet Sir Ian before the show in a intimate drinks reception.

Premium seating (In first four rows including drinks reception with Ian McKellen) £60.00

Standard seating £40

Rear seating (back two rows) £35

10% off for Theatre Friends (Friends have received a code by email to use online)

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.
