When drummer Simon Charterton isn’t championing the more challenging bands in town at Weird Sh*t nights, he’s playing music in a handful of bands including his super-group, Near Jazz Experience.

From Wildfell Hall to The Palace

The innovative theatre company Hallucinating Angels put Paula Yates in a big black dress and sexed up the De La Warr Pavilion, took you for a spin in the limo on their wedding day, invited you to share your shoe story in their pop up shop and chat about love in their tent. If you missed all that you can still experience Wildfell – a performance and film inspired by The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte.

St Leonards oak trees threatened with felling

From Eden to the Ancient Celts, and Monty Python’s lumberjacks to the Norse Yggdrasil, trees have attracted regard and wonder. An application to fell three oak trees in St Leonards with Tree Protection Orders is causing controversy. Bernard McGinley peers through the foliage of planning policy and sees where it is not being adhered to.
