Morris dancing has always been linked in my mind to village greens, half-timbered pubs selling real ale, cricket matches – the general rural idyll that is now largely preserved in the stockbroker belt.  As a result, it has acquired a sort of UKIP tinge in my mind – red-cheeked men singing Rule Britannia and waving Union Jacks.  Then there’s all that handkerchief waving and general fol-de-rol.  It’s a bit like buying free range eggs in Waitrose – being in touch with the earth without getting your hands dirty, writes Antony Mair.

Vienna Festival Ballet at the White Rock Theatre

The White Rock Theatre is not a mainstream cultural haven, being given over mostly to musical events at the lower end of the highbrow scale, alternating with stand-up comedy.  But we went along to see the Vienna Festival Ballet perform Sleeping Beauty last night, on the basis that classical music needs to be supported, writes Antony Mair .

St John Passion in St Leonards

We had another musical evening last night, courtesy of the Hastings Philharmonic Choir, in the magnificent Oxford Movement building of Christ Church, Saint Leonards.  If there’s classical music going, I believe in seizing the opportunity, and although choral music isn’t my favourite, you can’t go far wrong with Bach, writes Antony Mair.
