On the May 15th 2016: Sam Lee at Ropetackle Arts Centre
Mercury Prize nominated critically acclaimed folk singer Sam Lee is live in concert in Shoreham-by-Sea. His new interpretations of traditional song are the result of intrepid journeys throughout the British Isles and Ireland seeking out and recording ancient songs from the last of the Gypsy travelers. London born and bred man infused them with vital new energy to obtain a mix of exception. His latest album ‘Fade in Time’ goes even further encompassing world-wide traditions, from Japanese court music to Tajikistan wedding marches, all alongside traditional British folksong. Winner of the 2011 Arts Foundation Award, Sam is fast becoming accepted as a new pioneer, defining the sound, sight and texture of folksong today.

From May 24th 2016 to May 28th 2016: Dr Blighty at Royal Pavilion Garden
More than a million men travelled from India to fight with the Allies during World War One. Between 1914 and 1916, over 2000 Indian soldiers were wounded on the Western Front. Their temporary hospital is settled in the majestic Mughal-inspired Royal Pavilion of Brighton. Dr Blighty recalls this unexpected episode in Brighton’s history, bringing the experiences of the soldiers but also the local one’s who came to care of them. Part of the UK’s arts program for the First World War centenary, Dr Blightly proposes to visitors an immersive experience of the life at the Pavilion, entirely based on the letters of Indian soldiers.
