How do you fancy an intimate evening with Brian Blessed this summer?
The larger-than-life actor, writer, presenter, raconteur and force of nature will visit The Bowdon Rooms in Altrincham for a unique black-tie event on Saturday 4th September 2021.
His eloquence and humour will have the audience captured from the moment he walks on stage until the moment he leaves.
The unmissable ‘evening with’ includes a star-studded red-carpet entrance, Champagne reception, 3-course dinner, a memorabilia auction, world class live entertainment and unique art installations showcasing the Yorkshire actor's illustrious career on stage and screen.
The 84-year-old has forged a stellar career, from an early breakthrough performance in seminal 60s’ TV series Z Cars and I, Claudius in the 1970s to Flash Gordon, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Blackadder, Doctor Who and even Peppa Pig.
On stage he created the role of Old Deuteronomy in the original cast of Cats and was a member of the company at the RSC where his roles included Exeter in Henry V, Claudius in Hamlet and Hastings in Richard III.
Away from acting, he is also an intrepid explorer who has scaled Everest without oxygen – coming within 1,000ft of the summit, survived a plane crash in the jungle in Venezuela, has completed hundreds of hours of training at Space City in Russia, and in 1999 became the oldest man to trek to the Magnetic North Pole on foot.
With so much to ask him, there will also be the opportunity to take part in a question-and-answer session before getting to meet the legend himself and have a professional souvenir photograph to commemorate your evening.
Edward Prophet, who runs The Bowdon Rooms with brother Anthony, says: “Brian Blessed is a monumental figure in the world of acting, a truly intrepid and inspirational explorer, a big-hearted supporter of charity and hugely eloquent and entertaining company.
“It’s a real privilege to have him come to The Bowdon Rooms to share stories of his life and adventures; it should be a truly memorable evening.”
