Chorus rehearsal during the first phase of Barefoot Opera's development of a people's opera.

People’s opera project into new phase – participants wanted!

Barefoot Opera are moving into a new phase of their ‘people’s opera’ with a call-out for participants to start working towards the performance of an extract in late April and full performance a year later. The first events take place this weekend: a workshop for would-be chorus members and sessions in musical improvisation as part of the Hastings Fat Tuesday Festival. Nick Terdre reports.

This Saturday  you have the opportunity to take in a recital given by finalist Marcin Koziak from Poland and warm yourself with some mulled wine in the refined surroundings of the Recital Room at Fairlight Hall.

Pelham Place roundabout

Getting excited about a roundabout…

Pelham Roundabout is on the seafront in Hastings, more or less on the border between Hastings Old Town and what is referred to as the New Town – basically the shopping centre, with a sterile mall and some struggling High Street chains.  It is edged on one side by a car park on the front, on another by an Italian restaurant and on the third by a branch of Iceland and an office block called Aquila House – Aquila being pronounced by the locals to rhyme with Godzilla, writes Antony Mair.
