Joanna Lumley at Portsmouth Guildhall

The legendary Joanna Lumley will embark on her first ever live tour, IT’S ALL ABOUT ME, in autumn 2018. Joanna will take to the road for the 30-date tour on 6th October at Belfast's Waterfront Hall and then perform at major theatres in Ireland and across the UK.

Joanna will take audiences through her hilarious and interesting adventures from her incredible career spanning more than four decades, recounting some never heard before stories. She will also be joined on stage by friend and producer Clive Tulloh, who will put to Joanna questions from the audience that they’ve always wanted to ask, making the show a unique and hilarious night to remember.

On announcing It’s All About Me, Joanna said: “The thought of this tour next year, travelling across the British Isles and Ireland, has completely taken over my waking hours. It’s utterly thrilling to start planning the stories I can tell, and the rapture (and gratitude, to be fair) with which I shall greet the audiences. Nothing like this has come my way before, and I may have to be dragged off with a hook at the end of each show. Oh people! This is especially for you from me, with masses of love. I think it will be fabulous.”

Portsmouth Yoga's Women Rewilding: Restorative Retreat

Women Rewilding


Give yourself the gift of slowing down and taking time out to pause and reflect while also connecting with like-minded women.

Coinciding with November's Full Moon this restorative weekend of yoga, nature & circles will help you find a sense of balance in preparation for the winter ahead. It's about remembering our inner creative spirit and honouring our natural rhythms. 

We will focus on setting intentions to carry you through the colder seasons and self-care to prevent the vulnerabilty & depleted energies that we can experience in the darker, colder months of the year. 

This retreat will give you a boost and leave you more confident in maintaining your physical, mental and emotional health in the months to come. 

To honour our feminine nature, we do not plan a linear schedule for our retreats: except for meals, times and activities may vary to allow us to meet the needs & energy of the group.

Proposed activities include:

~ sharing circles
~ deep relaxation with storytelling
~ morning and evening yoga sessions
~ self-love workshop
~ cosy cocoon time
~ optional afternoon activities or free time
~ walking meditation: falling in love with the Earth

On previous retreats, we have had the opportunity to create plans for self nurture beyond the event, write letters to ourselves, plant seeds to represent intentions and we always provide a miniature library for the weekend. We ensure you have access to materials to express your creativity and you will receive a gift bag on arrival.

My Fair Lady at Groundlings Theatre - Starring David Burton and Richard Stride

My Fair Lady at Groundlings Theatre - Starring David Burton and Richard Stride

David Burton

Only Fools and

A Faint Heart Ne'er Won a Fair Lady – so we're in for a real treat when two great forces of stage, screen and TV are united at The Groundlings Theatre, Portsmouth next month in 'My Fair Lady'

The vastly experienced actor David Burton, who has appeared in countless theatre productions across the UK and many iconic TV shows including 'Only Fools and Horses' will be appearing alongside the equally talented Richard Stride – well known for his roles in the legendary 'Star Wars' films.

Although both actors have been friends for a number of years, and have worked together previously, this will be the very first time they have actually appeared on stage in the same production.

Burton explained: “I think it was 2005, when Richard was first putting out professional open air tours with various productions. I was invited to audition – which is when we first met. He directed me in the musical farce 'A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum' and we also appeared together in Shakespeare's  'Much Ado About Nothing' - but I never had any actual scenes with him in that production.

Things will be very different for both of us this time as we have a great number of scenes together and I'm looking forward to the on-stage banter between the two characters.”

Richard, who is also the founder and artistic director of Groundlings, takes on the demanding role of Professor Higgins while Burton plays his sidekick Colonel Pickering.

Burton added: “It was a lovely surprise when Richard contacted me, quite out of the blue and asked me if I would like to play the role in such an iconic musical. We sorted out the details with my agent – and here I am, getting ready to meet other members of the cast and starting rehearsals at the beginning of July.”

My Fair Lady runs at The Groundlings Theatre, Portsmouth from July 12 through to July  22.  Check the Box Office for further details.

My Fair Lady

Thursday 12th July – Sunday 22nd July

My Fair Lady, based on George Bernard Shaw’s play ‘Pygmalion’, is the winner of a host of Tony and Olivier awards and includes memorable classics such as ‘I could have danced all night’, ‘On the street where you live’ and ‘Get me to the church on Time’.

In a beautiful Edwardian setting, follow the highs and lows of Eliza’s remarkable transformation alongside Professor Higgins, which is guaranteed to leave you with a smile on your face and humming the tunes all the way home.
