The Landmark, Ilfracombe opens its doors to present an festival of live theatre this summer!

Selladoor Worldwide are delighted to announce that they will be holding a Summer Festival at The Landmark, Ilfracombe this summer.

Whilst theatres across the UK are still closed due to the challenges brought by Covid-19, Selladoor continue to commit to ensure the local communities of North Devon still have access to live theatre and the Summer Festival will provide this in a socially-distanced environment. The Summer Festival presents a programme of live performances between Thursday 27 and Monday 31 August.

Due to the uncertain weather forecast over the next few days, and for your comfort and safety, we’ve decided to move the performances indoors, but we still can’t wait to see you! All current bookers have been emailed new allocated seating tickets.

David Hutchinson, CEO of Selladoor Worldwide, said

“It’s now been nearly five months since we were forced to close the doors at our theatres and whilst we are still not able to present work inside our auditoriums, we didn’t want to miss the chance to connect with our North Devon audiences this summer – and so are delighted to announce our Summer Festival at The Landmark at the end of August. We have a curated programme from family performances to comedians and magicians, to complement our café and bar offering at the Quarterdeck. It has been a really tough year for theatres across the country – and as we launch our first live shows in the beautiful grounds of The Landmark – we urge our loyal patrons to come back and show their support for both the theatre and incredible artists who are presenting work this month for the first time since March.”
