Remembering James Ellis

Remembering James Ellis

On what would have been local actor, director, writer, son of east Belfast James Ellis’ 90th birthday today, we are delighted to share this video of messages from some of James’ family and friends who describe his impact and legacy. Featuring some of his children and grandchildren, actor James Nesbitt and the Lord Mayor of Belfast Frank McCoubrey, the video shares special memories and stories of his life.

Thank you to everyone who contributed.

Join us on Friday 26th March at 7pm for a live Remembering James Ellis at 90 online event celebrating his life, work and legacy. The evening will also reveal for the first time the unpublished and surprising written talents of James Ellis chaired by Claire Murray from Lyric Theatre, Belfast and led by Professor David Johnstone of Queen’s University Belfast.
