    Percy Kelly Exhibition at The Beacon Museum

    In 1997, the newly opened Beacon Museum hosted an exhibition of artwork by local artist Percy Kelly. Now, more than 25 years later, The Beacon Museum will host “Kelly’s Copeland”, a celebration of some of his finest work and preliminary sketches featuring the towns and villages of Copeland . It will be a unique opportunity to see some of his more famous pieces of work and expansive charcoals.

    The exhibition will also showcase a collection of Percy Kelly’s work, commissioned by Sir Nicholas Sekers of The Silk Mill in Whitehaven. This collection has never before been seen in public.

    This exhibition will feature opportunities to bring Percy Kelly’s work to life and share insights into this uniquely talented and complex artist, with guided walks and talks from Chris Wadsworth (founder of Castlegate gallery and author of Percy Kelly – the man who couldn’t stop drawing) and Tony Calvin (chairman of Friends of The Beacon), co-curators of the exhibition.

    Opening Hours – Tuesday to Sunday 10am to 4pm.

    What is Pay What You Decide?
    PWYD is a pricing strategy designed to encourage new audiences to try new work. It requires audiences to book in advance, but voluntarily pay an amount determined by them after the show, based on their experience.

    With PWYD, customers can book their place in advance then decide after the show what they think it is worth – therefore removing the risk of paying for something they might not enjoy.

    PWYD tackles both affordability and risk, two of the greatest barriers to people attending new work.

    Percy Kelly Exhibition at The Beacon Museum

    In 1997, the newly opened Beacon Museum hosted an exhibition of artwork by local artist Percy Kelly. Now, more than 25 years later, The Beacon Museum will host “Kelly’s Copeland”, a celebration of some of his finest work and preliminary sketches featuring the towns and villages of Copeland . It will be a unique opportunity to see some of his more famous pieces of work and expansive charcoals.

    The exhibition will also showcase a collection of Percy Kelly’s work, commissioned by Sir Nicholas Sekers of The Silk Mill in Whitehaven. This collection has never before been seen in public.

    This exhibition will feature opportunities to bring Percy Kelly’s work to life and share insights into this uniquely talented and complex artist, with guided walks and talks from Chris Wadsworth (founder of Castlegate gallery and author of Percy Kelly – the man who couldn’t stop drawing) and Tony Calvin (chairman of Friends of The Beacon), co-curators of the exhibition.

    Expect heart-melting serenades, ridiculous disguises and a fairytale ending waiting just out of reach.

    From the barber’s opening number Largo al factotum, with its cry of ‘Figaro!,’ to Rosina’s feisty aria Una voce poco fa, Gioachino Rossini’s comic opera is a riotously entertaining affair.

    Rafael Payare makes his House debut, and joins Christopher Willis in conducting a cast that includes Andrzej Filończyk, Aigul Akhmetshina, Laurence Brownlee, Konu Kim and Bryn Terfel.

    Percy Kelly Exhibition at The Beacon Museum

    In 1997, the newly opened Beacon Museum hosted an exhibition of artwork by local artist Percy Kelly. Now, more than 25 years later, The Beacon Museum will host “Kelly’s Copeland”, a celebration of some of his finest work and preliminary sketches featuring the towns and villages of Copeland . It will be a unique opportunity to see some of his more famous pieces of work and expansive charcoals.

    The exhibition will also showcase a collection of Percy Kelly’s work, commissioned by Sir Nicholas Sekers of The Silk Mill in Whitehaven. This collection has never before been seen in public.

    This exhibition will feature opportunities to bring Percy Kelly’s work to life and share insights into this uniquely talented and complex artist, with guided walks and talks from Chris Wadsworth (founder of Castlegate gallery and author of Percy Kelly – the man who couldn’t stop drawing) and Tony Calvin (chairman of Friends of The Beacon), co-curators of the exhibition.

    Opening Hours – Tuesday to Sunday 10am to 4pm.
