Will there be dinosaurs?

Will there be Dinosaurs? That’s the question hundreds of local theatre fans are asking as the second open air play of the season at Lytham Hall approaches. On Sunday 9 July at 6.00 pm Fylde coast favourites Illyria will present artistic director Oliver Gray’s new stage production of Arthur Conan Doyle’s adventure story The Lost World – from which the Jurassic Park story developed. Theatre organiser Julian Wilde believes that the audience is in for a major shock. “Illyria have in past years catapulted Mrs. Twit to the top of a 30 foot tree tree, produced a terrifying red-eyed Hound of the Baskervilles from the undergrowth and flown a Giant Peach right over the heads of the watchers, so I th

Repainting the front elevation

Heritage Trust for the North West is pleased to announce that they are getting on with the repainting of the front of Lytham Hall. As a first stage the North Entrance porch is being painted as a trial area to demonstrate to visitors and the general public how the front of the Hall will look when all the work is complete.

Veteran cars visit Lytham Hall

On Monday 19 June the North West branch of the Veteran Car Club came to Lytham Hall to do a regularity run and what a lovely sight it was. Over 25 cars came trundling up the driveway and parked up on the East lawn, to the delight of visitors. The drivers were treated to a ride in a vintage bus through Lytham, courtesy of John Edwards of Ribble Vehicle Preservation Trust, a tour of the Georgian hall and a lunch on site. It was particularly nice to see veteran cars on site, as John Talbot Clifton, squire of Lytham Hall until his death in 1928, was a keen car enthusiast, driving his own Panhard in a Paris – Vienna rally.

First blustery theatre show

The first open air play of the 2017 season at Lytham Hall last Sunday evening brought warm tributes from audience and cast alike, as Chapterhouse Theatre Company presented Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations to an audience of 250. Very changeable weather meant that early arrivals enjoyed a picnic in the sunshine, before blustery winds, especially in the second half of the play, became a challenge to those on and off stage. Company manager Emily-Rose Hurdiss who played Miss Havisham felt that the Lytham audience had responded well to the second show of their three month nationwide tour. “We very much enjoyed visiting Lytham Hall again which is an ideal venue for open air acting. This year we
