Rubbed! Aladdin’s Lamp just got camp

“We’ve been hard at work at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern (RVT), like demented elves in a stolen goods Christmas grotto creating a new adult-only panto for 2018 and this years twisted offering is… Rubbed! Aladdins Lamp just got camp.” Catia Ciarico, Programme Manager and Producer for RVT writes.

Send in the clowns

Clowns have been making headlines for all the wrong reasons recently, but Hastings Storytelling Festival redresses the balance with a riotous two-man show, Coulrophobia – aka ‘fear of clowns’ – at St Mary in the Castle. Naomi Robinson writes.

Swinging ukeleles

Tricity Vogue presents her own blend of slink and sass – the music she likes to call “cheeky jazz”. Think Peggy Lee after a few too many cocktails!  Tricity Vogue’s own All Girl Swing Band joins her at St Mary in the Castle, Hastings on Friday 11 December. Tricity is an acclaimed cabaret performer in her own right and created her successful and modern swing band  with bags of musical talent and irrepressible charm, while adapting many modern classics to the ‘swing’ genre, writes HOT’s Chris Cormack

C’mon Hastings! Support the Campaign for Real Music!

Robert Draper, a participant composer in the upcoming International Composers’ Festival, has strong views as to how classical music should be – and they’re not in accord with the thinking of modern academia. Music, he believes, has greater worth when borne of  instinct; when a product of the soul. HOT’s Chris Cormack interviews him on his ideas and the music. Come to the International Composers’ Festival and find out more.

The Phil celebrates spring early

Hastings Philharmonic Choir mounts a spring celebration to rival Jack-in-the-Green on 11 April at St Mary in the Castle. Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana rivalled Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring in its mixture of the sacred and the profane, the breaking loose from the shackles of strict medieval mores and the youthful vigour of a spring rejuvenation. Chris Cormack examines the kind of people who wrote the poetry that inspired Carl Orff towards his life’s musical masterpiece, the ‘scenic cantata’ that is Carmina Burana.
