    The Yellow Earl – the Life of Hugh Lowther

    The Yellow Earl – the Life of Hugh Lowther Exhibition

    All day
    01-05-24-11-09-22
    The Beacon
    West Strand, Whitehaven CA28 7LR, UK

    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.

    Poppy Trek Copeland
    CA12 5XJ Keswick, UK

    The Royal British Legion is encouraging people to sign up for this year’s Poppy Trek events taking place on the 13th and 14th of August, to raise vital funds for service personnel, veterans and their families.

    Fundraisers will have the opportunity to hike one of two iconic routes – a 9-mile trek to England’s highest war memorial at the summit of Scafell Pike, or a 9-mile trek to Great Gable, its beautiful neighbouring mountain and a brand-new route for 2022.

    Both the 9-mile and 6-mile routes will take participants through the picturesque and unique landscapes of the Lake District before reaching the 963-metre or 886-metre peak. After stopping to take in the views across Cumbria, participants will share a moment of reflection in a minute’s silence, paying tribute to the sacrifices made by our Armed Forces community past and present.
