The Catenary Wire + Pete Astor

"Brilliant double headliner - The Catenary Wires formed in 2014, initially as a duo. Amelia Fletcher and Rob Pursey had previously been in Talulah Gosh, Heavenly, Marine Research and Tender Trap. The first Catenary Wires album "Red Red Skies" (Elefant/Matinée Recordings, 2015) was a marked departure from the fuzzy sixties-inspired girl-group pop of their earlier bands. It was more acoustic, emotive and melancholy. The band have just completed their third album, to be released in May 2021. The first single "Mirrorball" is a lovesong inspired by eighties discos. It will be released on Shelflife (US) and their own new label, Skep Wax (UK and rest of world). –––– Pete Astor was the singer and songwriter in The Loft and The Weather Prophets; they were on Creation Records from the beginning and helped establish the feel and sound of the label. Pete then made a series of solo records, including Submarine (1990, Creation) and Paradise (1992, Danceteria), the latter having recently been reissued on Tapete Records. He then formed The Wisdom of Harry and Ellis Island Sound (with David Sheppard) and signed to the Matador and Heavenly labels respectively, releasing albums under these guises until the early 2000s. In 2005 he released Hal’s Eggs on Static Caravan and he has continued to release solo records on a variety of labels: Songbox (2011, Second Language), Spilt Milk (2015, Fortuna Pop), One For the Ghost (2017, Tapete) and You Made Me (2020, Faux-Lux). This is an 18+ event .

While imprisoned, Joseph discovers his ability to interpret dreams and soon finds himself in front of the mighty Pharaoh. Joseph's solution to Egypt's famine elevates him to Pharaoh's right-hand man and reunites him with his family.

Combining country and western, ballads and calypso with Elvis-style rock, the show includes songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice that have become unforgettable pop and musical theatre standards, including Any Dream Will Do, Close Every Door To Me, Jacob and Sons, There's One More Angel In Heaven and Go, Go, Go Joseph.

Postponed Patience

Patience is Gilbert and Sullivan's extremely witty, infrequently performed little masterpiece about the Aesthetic Movement of the 1880s. Complete with willowy poets, sighing maidens, hearty milkmaids and burly officers, every tune is whistleable, every word worth hearing, and the humour is as fresh as it was at the first performance.

The Telescopes + Supports

The Telescopes have been described by the British music press as 'more a revolution of the psyche than a revolution of the sidewalk'; a thread consistent throughout a body of work spanning over 30 years. The Telescopes have constantly pushed at their own boundaries to unravel new pathways of existence, colouring outside the lines of all expectation to reach beyond the realm of natural vision. With a legacy full of eureka moments, intravenously fed through a crack in the cosmic egg, The Telescopes invoke the kind of altered perceptions that time has shown not only withstand repeated listening, but reveal something new whenever one ventures into the depths of their highly influential artistry. At the core of their being, The Telescopes are an all embracing concern, in every sense, a constant revolution of the psyche exploding endless spores of sound, carriers of warm transmissions seeped in aural innovation that spiral around ones inner receptors to induce a series of auditory illusions that completely immerse the listener in the grip of their own imagination.Songs Of Love And Revolution is a solar burst of trance inducing rhythms gripped at the helm by a wall of throbbing bass held in place by a swarm of encircling guitars. Lashed to the mast of this whirling dervish, incantations abound to dispel what is bound. This is the 12th album by The Telescopes, music for a four-piece ensemble that will never sound the same twice in any given environment or to any set of ears. This is an 18+ event.

Why Will?

One man, one Bard, 20 speeches, 20 circles, 20 questions. Performed outdoors at the C16th Half House Farm in Three Oaks, Hastings, this is a one man show that explores Shakespeare's most famous speeches. Bowler Crab's Artistic Director, Stephen John answers twenty questions, the most prominent being "Why Will?" In an effort to answer why BC are a Shakespeare only company, Stephen presents his case to twenty socially distanced circles with twenty speeches from his eight years of running his Theatre Company. Presented in two 45 minute acts, Stephen presents snippets from Shakespeare's finest works: from Hamlet to Benedick, to Romeo to Bottom, to Caesar to Jaques. Tragedy and comedy lace this charismatic and personal performance as Stephen fights, feasts, frights, fakes and falls about laughing in every effort to share his passion for Shakespeare.

Small circles are 2m across , large circles are 3m across; all circles are 1.5m distance away from their neighbours. We still don't know what restrictions will end up being like throughout this summer but we aren't socially distancing because we have to, we're offering social distancing because we want all our playgoers to feel safe. Free program with every ticket, we will not be running a bar but safe toilet facilities are always available. Hay bales(s) are provided within each circle.

22 Jul–7 Aug at Half House Farm, Three Oaks
