LOWESTOFT'S Marina Theatre hosts a mountaineering expert, Irish folk duo and top line-up of films this week.

Tonight at 7.30pm the theatre welcomes adventurer Simon Yates for a humorous and philosophical look at some of the more notable experiences over his years as a mountaineer.

Simon was one of the two climbers whose perilous journey up the west face of Siula Grande in the Peruvian Andes in 1985 was explored in the incredible docu-drama film Touching the Void. Over 20 years on, he is one of the most successful mountaineers of his time.

Tomorrow at 7.30pm the Marina Big Screen hosts a final extra screening of The Duchess (12A), while at 7.30pm on Sunday it welcomes the blarney charm and Celtic tunes of evergreen Irish folk duo Foster and Allen.

Mick Foster and Tony Allen have enjoyed album sales in excess of 18 million copies and toured the world, performing for audiences of all ages and cultures, with hits including One Day at a Time, Everything is Beautiful and Amazing Grace.

Evelyn Waugh's classic novel Brideshead Revisited (12A) will be screened on Tuesday and Wednesday at 2.30pm and 7.30pm. The film is a story of love and longing amongst the rich yet insecure aristocracy of pre-WW2 England

On Thursday, Marina favourite Damian Williams begins his last run at the theatre for this year. The master of farce is performing in the Alan Aykbourn comedy Affairs In A Tent, from Bruce James Productions Ltd.

Katie Funk stars alongside Damian in a mad tale set on school sports day. Performances are nightly at 7.30pm from Thursday to Sunday, with a special matinee next Saturday at 2.30pm.

Next month the theatre will also be welcoming the Great Yarmouth-based Chorus of St Cecilia. They will be presenting a Christmas Spectacular, complete with hit festive songs and carols, a Dickens London scene and Nativity scene.

Soloists Marilyn Durrant, Stephen Amer and Matthew Canwell will all be performing with the 60 strong choir and a special youth and children's choir.

For tickets and information about any of the forthcoming Marina shows call the box office on 01502 533200.
