Minions 2: The Rise of Gru (U)
Rosehill Theatre
Rosehill Theatre, Whitehaven CA28 6SE, UK

Minions 2: The Rise of Gru (U)

The untold story of one 12-year-old’s dream to become the world’s greatest supervillain.

In the 1970s, young Gru tries to join a group of supervillains called the Vicious 6 after they oust their leader — the legendary fighter Wild Knuckles.

When the interview turns disastrous, Gru and his Minions go on the run with the Vicious 6 hot on their tails. Luckily, he finds an unlikely source for guidance — Wild Knuckles himself — and soon discovers that even bad guys need a little help from their friends.

Starring Steve Carell, Michelle Yeoh, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Danny Trejo, Russell Brand, Julie Andrews, and Alan Arkin

    The Yellow Earl – the Life of Hugh Lowther

    THE BEACON Museum’s next exhibition spotlights one of history’s most colourful characters.

    Hugh Lowther – known as The Yellow Earl because of his fondness for the colour – became the fifth Earl of Lonsdale in 1882.

    He owned much of Whitehaven and its coalfields, as well as assets around the country, but is said to have lived an extravagant lifestyle and spent the family fortune.

    The Earl was a sportsman and an adventurer – creating modern boxing and donating the Lonsdale belt. He was a patron of the Automobile Association (hence its yellow livery) and set up an animal charity.

    This new exhibition covers the extraordinary highs and lows of Hugh Lowther’s unusual life.

    It includes lots to do for children and families – igloo-making workshops (the Earl visited Alaska and claimed to have reached the North Pole), circus skills, Wii boxing and dressing up – as well as all the museum’s normal galleries and hands-on exhibits.

    ‘The Yellow Earl – the Life of Hugh Lowther’ opens at 10am on Saturday, April 2.

    Minions 2: The Rise of Gru (U)

    Minions 2: The Rise of Gru (U)

    The untold story of one 12-year-old’s dream to become the world’s greatest supervillain.

    In the 1970s, young Gru tries to join a group of supervillains called the Vicious 6 after they oust their leader — the legendary fighter Wild Knuckles.

    When the interview turns disastrous, Gru and his Minions go on the run with the Vicious 6 hot on their tails. Luckily, he finds an unlikely source for guidance — Wild Knuckles himself — and soon discovers that even bad guys need a little help from their friends.

    Starring Steve Carell, Michelle Yeoh, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Danny Trejo, Russell Brand, Julie Andrews, and Alan Arkin

    The Yellow Earl – the Life of Hugh Lowther

    THE BEACON Museum’s next exhibition spotlights one of history’s most colourful characters.

    Hugh Lowther – known as The Yellow Earl because of his fondness for the colour – became the fifth Earl of Lonsdale in 1882.

    He owned much of Whitehaven and its coalfields, as well as assets around the country, but is said to have lived an extravagant lifestyle and spent the family fortune.

    The Earl was a sportsman and an adventurer – creating modern boxing and donating the Lonsdale belt. He was a patron of the Automobile Association (hence its yellow livery) and set up an animal charity.

    This new exhibition covers the extraordinary highs and lows of Hugh Lowther’s unusual life.

    It includes lots to do for children and families – igloo-making workshops (the Earl visited Alaska and claimed to have reached the North Pole), circus skills, Wii boxing and dressing up – as well as all the museum’s normal galleries and hands-on exhibits.

    ‘The Yellow Earl – the Life of Hugh Lowther’ opens at 10am on Saturday, April 2.
