2015 Highlights


7.30pm, Saturday 3 October, Hastings Stade Open Space

Meaning ‘Hot Chilli’, Sonpikkante are the brainchild of the excellent Pollito Boogaloo, a brand new Afro-Latin dancing outfit – infectiously hot and funky beats for your feet!

Dear White People (15)

11am & 8pm Thursday 8 October, Electric Palace Cinema

This sly, humorous feature film debut offers a provocative satire of race relations in the age of Obama. It follows a group of African American students navigating campus life at a predominantly white college.


Seckou Keita with Gwyneth Glyn

7.30pm Friday 9 October, Hastings Museum & Art Gallery
Early bird £16/£12  (with/without food)
Full price £20/15 (with/without food)

Variously described as a ‘griot (praise singer), composer, djembe master, virtuoso and pioneer’, Seckou is a rare type of musician, seated in tradition whilst constantly pushing the boundaries of his art. His last two albums Miro and The Silimbo Passage hit No.1 in the European world music charts, and Clychau Dibon, the fruit of his collaboration with welsh harpist Catrin Finch, won fRoots Critics Poll Album of The Year 2013, Songlines Magazine Best Cross Cultural Collaboration 2014, and two BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nominations (Best Duo and Best Traditional Track) as well as a clutch of 4 and 5 star press reviews.
