Town Mill to celebrate Shakespere’s magical play

The TempestThe Tempest

Lyme Town Mill is devoting its annual summer exhibition to Shakespeare’s The Tempest.

It was an irresistible choice say organisers – a nod to the Bard’s 400th anniversary, the possible link between his play of 1611 and the 1609 shipwreck on Bermuda of Lyme-born Admiral Sir George Somers’s Sea Venture, and the Marine Theatre’s recent, hugely successful, production of the play.

The Tempest Summer Art Show will be open daily from 10.30am to 4.30pm from Thursday, August 4 to August 24. in the Courtyard Gallery.

Visitors can see how local 2D and 3D artists have interpreted the themes, imagery and character of this magical play.

To add to the summer festivities, on Saturday, August 6, from 6pm, The Mill will be welcoming back Cosmic Café Lite, the acoustic duo of lead vocal and guitarist Keith Smart and rhythm guitarist Bob Brooker.

Always a crowd-pleaser, Cosmic Café Lite will be playing hits from the 50s to the present and some of Keith’s original songs in the convivial atmosphere of the Mill’s courtyard.

The Courtyard Café and Brewery Tap will be extending their opening hours, so visitors can enjoy real ales and wholesome cooking while listening to some of the best live music Lyme Regis has to offer.
