The St Leonards Pub hosts ‘lock-in like no other’!

A brand new dark comedy brings a ‘lock-in like no other’ to the St Leonards Pub for one night only. Time Please, which launched to rave reviews in March, sees feisty publican, Cath (Kate Tym) and her stoically optimistic husband, Steve (John Knowles) struggling to make ends meet in their run down pub. Closing time takes a sinister turn when Keith (Garry Fox), one of their regulars, emerges – off his head and with a planet-sized chip on his shoulder. Chock full of wild conspiracy theories, Keith wants his story heard and Cath and Steve find themselves caught up in his crack-pot plan…and it’s not going to end well.

South Pacific and the £1,000 goal

Actors and actresses from The Renaissance Theatre Company are performing the award winning Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, South Pacific at the beautiful St Mary in the Castle on Hastings seafront. And this year, they want to raise at least £1,000 from their performances, as it would mean they’ve raised £30,000 for St Michael’s Hospice since 2009, especially as the hospice is celebrating its 30 Year Anniversary. Tuula Ward writes.
