Suzie’s Wilde Walk at Wylds Farm with PSF

Suzie and Raine visit Wyld’s Farm, where PSF are staging Midsummer Night’s Dream next week. It’s a magical space, where the audience will join the wedding party to walk through wildflower meadows and then sit beneath a giant oak tree to watch what unfolds … There’s more information from Lucy Hollis and Clare Glancy, long term organisers of course.

The Ticket – new arts and entertainment show

The Ticket – new arts and entertainment show

It’s a very special edition of The Ticket. 

Noni Needs chats to local composer and musican, Damian Montagu, and it’s fascinating to hear how Damian got his big break arranging David Bowie, how he picked up a major commission by offering too much choice, and how he accidentally produced his first album. Interspersed with some truly beautiful music, which captures the essence of living in the South Downs, it’s a wonderful listen.
