Sea Crossing Maggie's boat

Sea Crossing

Boats. There is something  about boats. From children playing in the bath with them, sailing them over ponds, boats frustratingly lost from being becalmed or capsizing. Then there are more grown up connotations; travel, exploration, trade, slaves, war and invasion. And  the vulnerability of mass migration in less-than-seaworthy vessels. At the Folkestone Triennial 2011, HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths walked into a church and was entranced by Hew Locke’s motley fleet of boats sailing in the knave above her. Magical and thought provoking.

Fat Tuesday: last two days

Following a busy weekend schedule in which the sun shone on the Umbrella Parade, many enjoyed the Preservation Sunday music and beer festival at St Mary in the Castle, not to mention the Off Axis sets played by up-and-coming bands at the Carlisle, while yet others enjoyed the way-out sounds and performances of Sonic Sunday in St Leonards, culminating in something really different at a secret location skilfully disguised beneath a garage, Fat Tuesday moves into its final two days. Here be the word from the website.
