Strummerville-On-Sea is a fundraising event organised by the Joe Strummer Foundation in their new seaside home of Hastings, supporting young local musicians with their artistic ambitions. Jamie from The Joe Strummer Foundation writes.

Proceeds from this event will go to Make Waves (formerly Live in the Valley), which has been running in Hastings and Rother for over 15 years and has supported thousands of young local people to become young musicians, providing creative opportunities in areas of high deprivation.

Make Waves is one of the most highly valued local projects, resulting in gigs, new music and positive activity for young people in an area that has struggled to offer them opportunities. The program is delivered in partnership between Rhythmix and East Sussex Targeted Youth Support.

Strummerville-On-Sea and Make Waves need your support and donations.

Part One of Strummerville-on-Sea, 23 April 2016
The two-pronged event will begin at the Electric Palace Cinema in Hastings with a very special screening of Joe Strummer’s Hell W10, a short black and white film written and directed by Joe.

There will also be a film from local artist Nichola Bruce showing Joe Strummer and Tymon Dogg playing Police and Thieves with the Mescaleros on Hastings Pier in 2002.

Following the screening, Daily Mirror music critic, Gavin Martin, and Joe Strummer biographer and author, Chris Salewicz, will discuss the films and the periods in The Clash’s history and Joe’s career that they document.

Very limited tickets are available for £10 here.

Part Two of Strummerville-On-Sea, 23 April 2016
At 6pm, we move on to The Albion in Hastings Old Town for an evening of eclectic new music from fine local talent and Joe Strummer Foundation supported artists.

Come and support new music, breath in some sea air and raise some money for a great local cause. This event is FREE, although there will be the chance to make a suggested donation of £3 in the venue. If you cannot attend this event, you could still make a small donation online. Your support is gratefully received. Thank you.

The Joe Strummer Foundation gives opportunities to aspiring musicians and support to projects globally that create empowerment through music.
