An Evening with Brian Blessed

Larger than life actor, writer and presenter Brian Blessed has announced a live appearance at Yarm's Princess Alexandra Auditorium. A giant of stage and screen, he is also an avid explorer and climber and An Evening with Brian Blessed will combine anecdotes from his illustrious acting career with tales

of his adventuring.

The show will see the OBE-honoured actor recounting stories from his numerous film and TV appearances from Flash Gordon to Black Adder and I Claudius to Z Cars. And he will also be talking about his three attempts to climb Everest without oxygen; his expedition to the jungles of Venezuela during which he survived a plane crash; his trek to the North Pole (he is the oldest man to go to the Pole on foot) and his 800 hours of space training in Russia!

With a career spanning more than 50 years, there is no shortage of material. On screen, he has appeared in everything from Doctor Who to Kenneth Branagh's Shakespeare films (four of them!). On stage his credits range from Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats to Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. And his trademark booming, operatic voice has also featured on everything from Peppa Pig character Grampy Rabbit to a voice download on TomTom's sat nav system.
