Lyme Literary: Patrick Barkham at the Marine

barkhamlowres_marcusgarrett

The Marine is pleased to announce a new event called Lyme Literary – a series of talks inspired by books.

In the first – based on his book Islander – Patrick Barkham travels from island to island in search of their special magic. Meeting all kinds of islanders, from nuns to puffins, he discovers what it is to be an islander.  Some islands, like Ray Island in Essex are abandoned and mysterious places haunted by myths, ghosts and rats. There are resurgent islands such as Eigg, which have been liberated from capricious owner-dictators; holy islands like Bardsey, the resting place of 20,000 saints, and still a site of spiritual questing; and dying islands such as St Kilda, famed for the evacuation of its people, and now dominated by wild sheep and seabirds.

Along the way, he uncovers bizarre and touching stories about island life, meets a host of curious characters and native species, and explores some of the most beautiful landscapes in Britain.

Patrick Barkham is a features writer for the Guardian, where he has reported on everything from the Iraq War to climate change. He is the author of The Butterfly IslesBadgerlands and Coastlines.

About the films

The Snowman (cert. U)

Introduced by David Bowie, this is a wordless – save for the song “Walking in the Air” – animated adventure about a young English boy who makes a snowman one Christmas Eve, only for it to come to life that night and take him on a magical adventure to the North Pole to meet Santa Claus.

Father Christmas (cert. U)

Starring Mel Smith, after a hard night’s work, Father Christmas decides to go on a “blooming vacation”, builds his sledge into a caravan and holidays in France, Scotland and Las Vegas before coming home and settling down. With a bit of grumbling, he has to answer the mail, get the gifts ready, deliver them and get to the Snowmens’ party on time – only he’s forgotten something.

This is the Kit | Thursday 11 January

 

this is the kit

This Is The Kit will play the Marine Theatre as the first date of an international tour.

This Is The Kit – the playful indie folk band led by Paris-based songwriter Kate Stables – has earned the adoration of peers including Guy Garvey, The National and Sharon van Etten. In the last year This is the Kit have performed live in session on BBC 6music and at festivals including Glastonbury.

Their new album is on Rough Trade records, home to The Strokes and Jarvis Cocker; ‘Moonshine Freeze’ is undoubtedly their best to date, and is produced by John Parish (PJ Harvey, M Ward).

Sonically, Moonshine Freeze is a beguiling mixture of great musical sophistication and something more guileless — children’s games, incantations and snatches of nursery rhymes. “All of it is good” – ★★★ Mojo Magazine.
