MSL Discover and Barefoot Opera are working on a special pop-up street performance event called Sun Shall Rise. It will take place during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend on Saturday 4th June in Hastings.

MSL has commissioned Barefoot Opera’s, Lucy Mulgan, and writer, Rosanna Lowe, to create a new choral work to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Barefoot Opera’s Choral Director, Jenny Miller, has been working with professional singer and workshop specialist, Lucy Mulgan, to recruit a community choir.

The new work will be performed in Hastings town centre on Saturday 4th June and will be reprised two weeks later, on Sunday 26th June, at Hastings Sanctuary Festival.

As part of the event MSL Projects are holding a drop-in hat making workshop with Radiator Arts on Saturday 4th June from 10am to 1pm giving adults and children the opportunity to make a fantastic hat for the occasion. The workshop is on a pay what you can basis (minimum £1). To register your interest please contact

The project is funded by Arts Council England’s Let’s Create Jubilee Fund, Sussex Community Foundation, Historic England, Trinity Triangle Hastings, Heart of Hastings, and East Sussex Arts Partnership.

This project has been made possible by a grant from Localgiving and Postcode Society Trust, a grant-giving charity funded by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
