Still inventive, still anarchic, still fun after all these years together – what an achievement!

The Grand Theatre of Lemmings began as a touring theatre company in 1984, creating vibrant theatre shows with inventive themes and great comic skill. Their work opened up to embrace 'street theatre' and they quickly became pioneers of that new genre. In France they would be known as a 'compagnie historique' and have travelled the world performing at outdoor festivals and events in over 26 countries.

Now working as creative producers they are developing several imaginative celebratory events in their own region and 2018 continues to be as busy and as beautiful as ever for The Lemmings. The Lemmings are proud to announce a collaboration with Danny Boyle's 14-18 NOW project, Pages Of The Sea. On 11 November 2018, communities will gather on beaches to say thank you and goodbye to the millions of men and women who left their shores during the war, many never to return. The Lemmings would love it if you were able to join them on Clacton's West Beach to mark 100 years since Armistice and the end of the First World War. Find out more about this project on the 'What’s New' section of the website.

As for 2018 so far, The Lemmings have enjoyed their sunny summer touring their Museum of Coastal Curiosities as part of Essex County Council's Resorting to the Coast project. The Museum of Coastal Curiosities was a museum like no other! It was crammed full of fascinating facts, seaside memorabilia and historic artifacts that really brought the heritage to life. They spent over three weeks chatting to locals, visitors and entertainment enthusiasts about the varied history of our coastline.
