VIP Boathouse Tours - 15 & 17 Aug


If you've ever fancied having a personal tour onboard our All Weather Lifeboat then our VIP Boathouse Tours are for you. Numbers are strictly limited so that you get the chance to have a good look round both our lifeboats and ask the crew any questions that you have.

The evenings start at 7pm and usually finish around 9pm when we'll serve up some cheese and wine. Tickets are £10 and are limited to 24 people per evening. The evenings are aimed at adults and older children as some of the questions can get a bit technical at times! If you'd like to come along give the Boathouse a call on 01929 423237.

Much Ado About Nothing


This year's open air theatre event at Prince Albert Gardens (PAG) is taking place on Sunday August 14th 7:30pm.

Swanage Lifeboat and The Rain or Shine Theatre Company invite you to eavesdrop on a comedy about......eavesdropping; and to relax and enjoy a tale that involves love, jealousy, revenge, silliness and acerbic wit!


Welcome to the world of Shakespeare's comic classic - Much Ado About Nothing




Where many things are not what they seem and the truth appears only after much trial and tribulation.

Hero loves Claudio, and he loves her.....but will it all end happily? Beatrice loathes Benedick, and he loathes her......or do they? Don John hates everyone and plots much mischief. Don Pedro and Leonato desire joy for all.

Who will succeed in their plans and who will fail?


Tickets £11 Adults / £5 Children in advance.  £13 Adults / £6 Children on the door.


Tickets on sale at The Lifeboat Shop, Swanage Tourist Information Centre (01929 422885), Corbens Estate Agents, also via Ticketweb www.ticketweb.co.uk 

Grounds open from 6pm for picnics. Bar, Tea & Coffee and Pimms all available at PAG.

Please bring your own seating, blanket and something warm, just in case!

Exciting news!

So last night we had a big planning meeting for Lifeboat week and I can announce today that plans are coming along very quickly. I’m getting the sense that this year is going to be bigger and even better than previous years (let’s hope for less rain than last year!) so put the dates in your diary NOW (Friday 19th & Saturday 20th August)

My main responsibility is booking bands and I’m really excited with how this is coming together. Back once again to headline the Friday evening are the Wiseleys from London town. This awesome group played for us 2 years ago and enjoyed it so much they came back to play at our Christmas party! Once again on the Saturday evening we have our great friends The Reptiles. I’ve lost track of how many times they headlined Saturday night for us but they’re awesome, we love them, you love them…what more needs to be said?!
