An Evening with Brian Blessed


We are delighted to welcome to Oxford, actor, adventurer and raconteur Brian Blessed. Yorkshire-born Blessed is one of this country’s best-known actors, both for his larger-than-life portrayals in the theatre, films and television and of course for his unmistakable resounding voice – heard everywhere from animated films and tv ads to video games and satellite navigation systems.

This giant of a man has an eloquent wit and wonderful aptitude for story-telling. An Evening with Brian Blessed is an experience that nobody should miss.

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. Brian is also a great adventurer and avid mountaineer having made three expeditions to Mount Everest, trekked to the North Pole and explored The Lost World in Venezuela amongst other exploits.

Brian is an enthusiastic and animated performer, so expect a very lively evening and the possible inclusion of some expletives!

Duration: 3 hours with interval
