Tyne Theatre and Opera House are very excited to welcome larger than life legend Brian Blessed to the stage for ‘An Evening with Brian Blessed’ on Thursday 6th September.

British actor Brian Blessed is known for his hearty, king-sized portrayals on film and television.

A giant of a man accompanied by an eloquent wit and booming, operatic voice.

An evening with Brian Blessed is an experience that nobody should miss. His eloquence and humour will have the audience captured from the moment he walks on stage until the moment he leaves.

Brian will talk about his career on stage and screen including anecdotes from Flash Gordon, Blackadder, I,Claudius and Z Cars and his many appearances in Shakespearean Productions.

He is also an avid climber and has conquered Everest and Kilimanjaro amongst others.

His show may not be suitable for people of a nervous disposition or those who aren’t expecting the odd expletive!

An Evening with Brian Blessed is the latest addition to a host of fantastic spoken word events at Tyne Theatre & Opera House. On Friday 23rd February we celebrate the life and career of Michael Parkinson, as the star appears in person to discuss his remarkable journey. On Friday 2nd March, the one and only Suggs will discuss his ‘Life in the Realm of Madness’ in ‘What a King Cnut’, and American humorist, best-selling author and radio star David Sedaris will be at the theatre on Tuesday 17th July.

Theatre Director Joanne Johnson says: “An Evening with Brian Blessed is a show we’re all so excited about! I’m thrilled that we can bring such a larger than life personality to the Tyne Theatre & Opera House stage, and I’m sure his tales will be utterly fascinating! Spoken word events are proving very popular at the theatre, and I think we provide a beautiful, intimate setting for people to listen to their heroes talk about their incredible lives.”
