By 'Echium!

The Daily Mail wrote on 30 May about the discovery of an Echium Pininana of 14ft high, in the back garden of Mr Philips in Devon. They wondered whether that could be the tallest garden flower. Well, at Lytham Hall we can top that easily! When you come into our South Prospect garden, you will see an Echium of 4.90m (over 16ft), basking in the protection of our Paradise wall. This flower, also known as the Giant Viper’s Bugloss or Tower of Jewels, flowers every two years and originates in the Canary Islands. The Canary Islands of course have a special connection to Lytham Hall as the squire John Talbot Clifton (1868-1928) died in Tenerife, Gran Canaria, whilst travelling to Timbuctoo. The Echi

Half-term fun at Lytham Hall

This half-term holiday there is something for everyone at Lytham Hall. From Saturday 27 May until Friday 2 June we are organising an explorer week for families. The idea for an explorer week comes from the Lytham Hall history books. The Lord of the Manor John Talbot Clifton (1868-1928) travelled the world throughout his life and explored South America, Siberia, Japan, Africa and the United States. He even sat on top of a dead mammoth and ate bear soup in Russia. We know that there is lots to explore at Lytham Hall too! Between 12pm and 3pm every day pick up a flag trail from the tea room green for £2 and match the flags on the South Prospect with the countries. Every day at 1pm and 3pm ther

Last chance to get "up close and personal" to Merrill Osmond

Tuesday 6 June Lytham Hall offers the unique opportunity to get “Up Close and Personal” with Merrill Osmond, as he gives an intimate concert in the Upper West Wing. The last tranche of tickets have just become available, and with it the revelation that there will also be a possibility to have your photograph taken with Merrill. Paul Lomax, catering and hospitality manager at Lytham Hall said “Merrill Osmond usually plays to venues of hundreds, so to have a ticket for a concert of this size, will be a fantastic experience. Our Upper West Wing offers a great setting and we will make sure that the food leaves nothing to be desired. This evening will be one to remember!” Tickets have already bee

Music brings double delight for playgoers

Two groups of local musicians will provide double delight for playgoers attending the first two open air shows of the season at Lytham Hall. The Guardian Concert Band, under the baton of Paul Cooper, will be in action at the opening play of the season, Great Expectations, on Sunday June 11 when they will play for 40 minutes before the show and for 20 minutes at the interval. The Lytham Community Choir, conducted by Graham Warrington, will then entertain before the stage performance when Illyria present The Lost World on Sunday July 9. Julian Wilde, organiser of the four play outdoor season, feels that the music will complement the on-stage action perfectly. “The Guardian Band and the Commun

Bags of Help results in kitchen garden

For regular visitors to Lytham Hall’s parkland, the kitchen garden project has been fantastic to behold, as every week changes were visible in the area just behind the tea room. On Tuesday 9 May the project was officially opened, with a crowd of volunteers attending who can’t wait to continue getting stuck in. The garden is looking splendid and it is a real feature for visitors too. Early in 2016 Lytham Hall project manager Simon Thorpe put in a bid to Tesco’s Bags of Help appeal fund, which Tesco’s customers were able to vote for when doing their shopping. The bid was successful and £10,000 was donated by Tesco for the development of a community kitchen garden next to the apiary. The plan c

Patrons boost open air plays

A record number of Lancashire businesses are putting themselves in the spotlight by backing the 2017 outdoor theatre season at Lytham Hall. Twenty two locally-based firms are lending their support to this year’s four play summer programme which opens with Chapterhouse Theatre’s production of Great Expectations on Sunday June 11. Green Drive Golf Club and Giggles Day Nursery in Lytham are the latest to join the ranks of Patrons which began with just five for the outdoor theatre’s first season in 2010. Ailsa Pemberton, partner at Pembertons Dairies, a Patron from the beginning, feels that the success of open air summer events, including the outdoor theatre shows, are keeping Lytham in the spo
