    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.
    To book, or find out more, visit www.thebeacon-whitehaven.co.uk, or call 01946 592302.

    Set in the late 70s (and packed with 70s era comedy moments), this hilarious play concerns the wedding of Deirdre and Mark.

    The fun begins on the stag night when an inebriated Mark is chained to a lamppost with a blow-up rubber doll. The wedding itself is quite high spirited too with half the guests, including the priest, suffering blinding hangovers!

    During WWII, two intelligence officers use a corpse and false papers to outwit German troops.

    It’s 1943. The Allies are determined to break Hitler’s grip on occupied Europe and plan an all-out assault on Sicily; but they face an impossible challenge – how to protect a massive invasion force from potential massacre.

    It falls to two remarkable intelligence officers, Ewen Montagu and Charles Cholmondeley, to dream up the most inspired and improbable disinformation strategy of the war – centred on the most unlikely of secret agents: a dead man.

    Staring Colin Firth, Matthew Macfadyen and Kelly Macdonald.

    The Fourmost

    The Fourmost had its roots steeped in the eclectic 1960s Mersey beat boom and was part of the Brian Epstein stable along with The Beatles, Billy J Kramer, Gerry and The Pacemakers, Cilla Black and others. The band has evolved from enjoying 1960’s chart hits such as Hello Little Girl (no.9) and A Little Loving (no.6) and less popular songs as I’m In Love (17), Baby I Need Your Lovin (24), Girls Girls Girls (33) and a cover of George Formby’s Auntie Maggie’s Remedy which failed to chart in the UK.

    During the 1970s and the early 1980s like many of its peers, The Fourmost played mainly on the cabaret circuit as it struggled to compete for appeal with disco, funk, glam rock and punk.

    Since the mid 1980s The Fourmost has enjoyed a golden era as part of the wider 1960s revival scene and now appear throughout the UK and Europe playing at theatre’s, holiday parks and 60s festivals to a diverse fan base.

    The Fourmost have been continually active since forming as the Four Jays in 1959, the personal may have changed over the years but the sound and look of the band have remained the same.

    The Fourmost are one of the most authentic 1960s bands currently on the circuit today, from their Vox amps, Rickenbacker guitars and Ludwig drums down to their Italian made slim fitted suits and Cuban

    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.

    During WWII, two intelligence officers use a corpse and false papers to outwit German troops.

    It’s 1943. The Allies are determined to break Hitler’s grip on occupied Europe and plan an all-out assault on Sicily; but they face an impossible challenge – how to protect a massive invasion force from potential massacre.

    It falls to two remarkable intelligence officers, Ewen Montagu and Charles Cholmondeley, to dream up the most inspired and improbable disinformation strategy of the war – centred on the most unlikely of secret agents: a dead man.

    Staring Colin Firth, Matthew Macfadyen and Kelly Macdonald.

    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.

    The Fourmost

    The Fourmost had its roots steeped in the eclectic 1960s Mersey beat boom and was part of the Brian Epstein stable along with The Beatles, Billy J Kramer, Gerry and The Pacemakers, Cilla Black and others. The band has evolved from enjoying 1960’s chart hits such as Hello Little Girl (no.9) and A Little Loving (no.6) and less popular songs as I’m In Love (17), Baby I Need Your Lovin (24), Girls Girls Girls (33) and a cover of George Formby’s Auntie Maggie’s Remedy which failed to chart in the UK.

    During the 1970s and the early 1980s like many of its peers, The Fourmost played mainly on the cabaret circuit as it struggled to compete for appeal with disco, funk, glam rock and punk.

    Since the mid 1980s The Fourmost has enjoyed a golden era as part of the wider 1960s revival scene and now appear throughout the UK and Europe playing at theatre’s, holiday parks and 60s festivals to a diverse fan base.

    The Fourmost have been continually active since forming as the Four Jays in 1959, the personal may have changed over the years but the sound and look of the band have remained the same.
