Frozen out at Fairlight Hall

The thing about summer in the UK is that we’ve all got this idealised picture of balmy afternoons and evenings, strawberries and cream, cricket matches in the heat etc. – whereas the truth is very different.  People moan about climate change but I have distinct recollections of watching opera in country house venues years ago with the rain lashing down on the marquee – even one occasion at Glyndebourne when everyone was picnicking on the covered walkways like stranded refugees in dinner jackets, writes Antony Mair.

Hastings  piano  competition reaches out to community

The Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition (HIPCC), more than any previous year, is bringing the Hastings Musical Festival to the attention of ordinary Hastings  and 1066 people with a programme of attractive fringe and main events to entice us with great piano music, all thanks to support from the Kowitz Family Foundation and an Arts Council grant, writes Chris Cormack.

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.
