Talk in the Tea Room

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES. We hope to have an alternative date available in the future.

‘The Royal Pavilion as an Indian Military Hospital and the Impact of the Martial Race Theory’ by Amanda Scales

Wednesday 26th April

7.30pm

The second in this year’s Talks in the Tea Room series looks into how the 1857 Indian uprising was still very relevant as to how the Indian soldiers were treated during their stay at the Royal Pavilion during WW1. How much was genuine care and how much was propaganda to ensure a never-ending supply of men were available to fight for the Empire?

Doors open at 7.30pm and the talk begins at 7.45pm. Tickets cost £6 and include the talk, a hot drink and some cake!

Refrain

Friday 9th – Sunday 11th June

Presented by Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts and Situations.

Over three days in summer 2017, visitors can experience Newhaven Fort as never before, through a new immersive, choral experience devised by composer and artist Verity Standen. REFRAIN explores the stories of conscientious objection with a professional ensemble and local male singers.

Newhaven Fort is the last of a long series of defences built on the cliffs overlooking Seaford Bay. During the First World War the Fort became a part of larger defences, linking with Seaford – the site of a work camp that now lies buried underneath the town. The North Camp at Seaford housed a number of conscientious objectors, firstly before their deportation to Northern France, and subsequently for those who refused to fight and were put to work on the road improvements between Seaford and Newhaven.

Verity Standen is an award-winning artist, composer and choir leader, whose unique work with voices has surprised and enchanted audiences across the UK and internationally. From intimate concerts to immersive theatrical experiences, Verity’s work seeks to reimagine how audiences experience vocal music.
