Hermit – a life on the margins

Hastings has its own legendary hermit, John Hancox, who lived in a cave in Ecclesbourne Glen for around fourteen years until his death in 1904. Sadly, homelessness is becoming an increasingly important issue in society, and now local community arts organisation, Radiator, has joined forces with the local wellbeing centre, Seaview, to produce a unique event based on John’s life. HOT reporter Cathy Simpson talked to Rebecca Child, who is leading the project along with Mary Hooper and Hilary Turner.

The power of six

The Fleet Gallery on Norman Road is always a surprise. You never know who or what you will see there: Maggi Hambling, Terry Frost, Mary Fedden, Ben Nicholson or – either their work or in person – locals like Roland Jarvis, Laetitia Yhap and Amanda Nicol. Patrick Robbins is a great supporter of local artists and so HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went along to see his latest show of ‘6’ (mainly) resident painters.

Battle Choral Society presents Mozart concert

The word requiem, translated as ‘rest in peace’, conjures a welcome rest after the travails of life and the pain of illness before death – but to an 18th century Catholic fundamentalist, it invokes deliverance from eternal damnation! On 29 November Battle Choral Society  delivers the anguished music of Mozart as he faced up to his own mortality, writes Chris Cormack.

Mercatoria Theatre do it again!

Every year for the last five years, the Mercatoria Company re-form to transform St Leonards Gardens into a leafy theatre and bring Shakespeare back to life. HOT’s journalists, Cathy Simpson (well-versed in Shakespeare) and Erica Smith (a rather reluctant first-timer) joined the promenade around the park.
