You can’t miss the larger than life Brian Blessed this summer

June 7, 2022

Lose yourself as the larger than life Brian Blessed waxes lyrical about his acting career and global adventures in An Evening with Brian Blessed at Theatre Royal Winchester on Tuesday 14 June.

The actor, writer and presenter takes to the stage with anecdotes from an acting career that has spanned more than five decades and seen him star in TV series such as Doctor Who; appear on stage in shows including Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats; and lend his trademark booming voice to the character of Grampy Rabbit in Peppa Pig as well as feature as a voice download on TomTom’s satnav system.

Blessed will tell tales of his adventures as an avid explorer and climber too. From his Everest climb without oxygen to his expedition to the jungles of Venezuela, his trek to the North Police and hours’ space training in Russia.

Known for his hearty, king-sized portrayals on film and television and a giant of a man with wit and operatic voice, this show is an experience not to be missed, but not suitable for audiences of a nervous disposition or who aren’t expecting the occasional expletive!

An Evening with Brian Blessed will be at Theatre Royal Winchester on Tuesday 14 June at 7.30pm. Age guidance 16+. For more information or to book tickets visit theatreroyalwinchester.co.uk or call 01962 840 440.
