British Sea Power's 'Sea Of Brass'
Friday 24th 7pm De La Warr Pavilion. Bexhill.
With the Redbridge Brass Band.

After working with musical arranger Peter Wraight (Matthew Herbert Big Band), the chart-topping indie rock band British Sea Power will be touring UK venues performing their favourite songs from a ten year back catalogue in collaboration with championship brass bands from across the country.

British Sea Power are a six-piece band originating from Cumbria, Yorkshire, Ealing and Shropshire who have released seven albums since 2003 and are currently the longest-serving band/artist signed to Rough Trade Records. Their track Remember Me was voted number 9 in the most important hundred tracks of BBC6 Music’s lifetime by the station’s listeners and have enjoyed an array of muscial endorsements from the likes of David Bowie, Jarvis Cocker, Radiohead and Flaming Lips.

Redbridge Brass Ensemble formed started competing in 1970. They formed out of the Redbridge Music School and entered the top level Championship Section in 1986 where it has remained ever since. In 2008 Redbridge made its Glastonbury debut performed live on stage with ‘Hot Chip’ in front of 40,000 people.

This is the first time British Sea Power have entered a music collaboration with another performing group and this project has been two years in the making already. BSP are known for their sell-out rock performances as much as they are for their sensitive film scorings, including the recent ‘From the Sea to the Land Beyond’ which has now been released by Rough Trade as British Sea Power’s seventh LP and was voted Guardian’s album of the week in December 2013.

Bexhill Museum Lecture: ‘Edward Wadsworth, Painter From The Slade To The De La Warr Pavillion’
Wednesday 26th 2.30pm St Augustine’s Church Hall, St Augustine’s Close. Bexhill.
Edward Wadsworth, a contemporary of Stanley Spencer at the Slade School of Art, was a staunch modernist, contributor to the war effort with his vorticist camouflage ‘dazzle’ ships and, after 1918, a supporter of the British and European avant-garde alongside Ben Nicholson. In 1936 Serge Chermayeff commissioned him to design a mural for the De La war Pavilion; influenced by his love of the sea, it also reflected his interest in surrealism. Shifting between figurative and abstract painting, Wadsworth’s career is a fascinating story of the traditional and the original.
