Public Open Days at the historic property Belmont on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th September 2019.

Belmont, Lyme Regis, Open Day

This fine 18th-century maritime villa in Lyme Regis is listed Grade II* and 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. We have restored Belmont to its appearance in Mrs Coade’s day. Here you can sit – and indeed write – in John Fowles’s former writing room with its wide views of sea and sky. In the garden there is a Victorian observatory tower, with hatch and revolving roof. 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.  Free Admission and leaflets on the building's history. 10am to 4pm Pound Street, Lyme Regis

All is True (2019)  HISTORICAL BIOPIC
The year is 1613, and Shakespeare is acknowledged as the greatest writer of the age.  But disaster strikes when his renowned Globe Theatre burns to the ground. Devastated, Shakespeare returns to Stratford, where he must face a troubled past and a neglected family. Haunted by the death of his only son, Hamnet, he struggles to mend the broken relationship with his wife and daughters. In so doing, he is ruthlessly forced to examine his own failings as a husband and father.  OFFICIAL TRAILER: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1I5cKmiONDI Those with a keen interest in the life of Shakespeare, from behind the pages, may find some wealth of knowledge in Branagh’s take on the playwright. Written by Ben Elton, the script features a sharp and satirical take on the life of the Bard—which may prove to be accessible for those currently studying his great works, too.  Wootton Fitzpaine Village Hall  (Bar in the adjacent Social Club is opened for refreshments)    Doors open 7pm, short film begins at 7.30pm then an intermission followed by the main feature, tickets are £5, available on the door. All proceeds to the Hall.

‘Bonnet de Douche’ . . . Boycie’s heading off on tour!


Only Fools and Horses star John Challis, a household name for his portrayal of used car dealer Boycie in the hit TV show, is taking his one-man theatre show off on tour this autumn with some performances in our area:

Sep 17 – Yeovil, Octagon

Sep 19 – Bridport, Arts Centre

Sep 20 – Winchester, Theatre Royal

Sep 22 – Exeter, Northcott

Oct 30 - Exmouth
The show draws on anecdotes and behind-the scenes secrets from John’s colourful career which spans more than 50 years, in theatre, on television, and in several movies.

 He says: “In the show, I talk about my Only Fools and Horses co-stars like Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst, my memorable encounter with The Beatles, and recall tales from my time in Dr Who, Coronation Street and other TV classics. And afterwards, I stop to sign autographs and pose for selfies."
 

 

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

Get Fossiling on the Jurassic Coast! Join one of Lyme Regis Museum’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. 

 

Each walk is limited to 15 people per guide. Start times for walks vary according to the tides and take about three hours.
