Frankie Howerd Returns
Famed for Up Pompeii, the Carry-On Films, and dozens of television
appearances, Frankie Howerd was one of Britain's most loved comedians for
half a century. Coming to the Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis, Howerd's End is
a brand new play by Mark Farrelly. It explores the heart of Frankie's secret
personal life with his manager Dennis. The play also pays great tribute to
the legendary comic with extended scenes of Frankie in full-flight stand up
mode. Packed with laughter, but unafraid of truth, Howerd’s End
portrays a journey through closeness, love, grief, and all the other things
that make life worth living. The play has received rave reviews for its off
West-End run, and is from the same writer of Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope

Fossils, Fish and Feathers
is an exhibition of recent
by Lyme Bay Artist Trisha Hayman,
which will be on show at the Rotunda
Gallery of the Lyme Regis Museum from 14 September until 24 October.
Trisha’s artwork features some of
nature’s less considered and expendable specimens - some beautiful, some
bland and some often ignored. Her mission is to show the fragility of
nature, especially specimens that are cast-off, discarded and abandoned,
such as animal skulls and antlers, sea shells, birds’ eggs, age-old
fossils and ammonites. Her way of working involves many hours examining
the subject matter closely - so a fine sable paintbrush, a magnifying
glass and plenty of hot pressed paper are her essential work mates.
The Lyme Regis Museum is open daily 10am
until 5pm (4pm on Sundays), and for more information, you can visit

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!
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.
