Adrian May's Discovering England
Saturday 17 June, 3pm
A wry look at England and Englishness from a creative left-wing viewpoint. In the songs and poems of his new book and albun, Adrian May takes a wry look at the vexed questions of English identity. Ranging from the comic to the poignant, where 'Nobody hates the English as much as they hate themselves', the songs deal with irony, eccentricity and rebel heroes like John Ball, the leader of the Peasants' Revolt of 1381. The approach is progressive and inclusive.
The gig will include a performance by Adrian in his musical duo Face Furniture, with double-bassist Murrary Griffin of songs form the new book.
Tickets £5 / concessions £4
Thursday 12 July - Sunday 10 September
Alan Hockett explores the edges of habitation of the Essex Landscape. These areas have multiple uses from out of town shopping to industrial sites to wasteland, but once the shops close, factories stop work, they become a stage for street racing, or crusing for teenagers. Desire paths created by urban landscaping not fitting the actual journey of the people that use it, creating a discourse between the design and its actual use.
