Exmouth RNLI volunteers to host Mikron theatre production
On 2 July at 2pm, Exmouth lifeboat station will be transformed into a theatre for the production of ‘In at the Deep End’, a performance by Mikron Theatre company to raise money for the charity that saves lives at sea.
The travelling theatre group have chosen Exmouth lifeboat station as one of eight operational venues within the Institution. The production is described on their website:
'With mavellous maritime music and fathoms of fun, join Mikron as they dive into two hundred years of saving lives at sea!'

Key facts about the RNLI
The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Ireland from 238 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen and Lough Ree. Additionally the RNLI has more than 1,000 lifeguards on over 240 beaches around the UK and operates a specialist flood rescue team, which can respond anywhere across the UK and Ireland when inland flooding puts lives at risk.
The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. As a charity it is separate from, but works alongside, government-controlled and funded coastguard services. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 our lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity, including 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members and 3,000 volunteer shore crew. Additionally, tens of thousands of other dedicated volunteers raise funds and awareness, give safety advice, and help in our museums, shops and offices.
