De La Warr Pavilion, Marina, Bexhill-on-Sea

Saturday February 24-Sunday January 6

Free

1935 brings together a series of events that took place in and around the vicinity of the De La Warr Pavilion, the year the building opened to the public. The De La Warr Pavilion is an architectural manifestation of a progressive social movement invested in providing the best art and culture for all. It was commissioned by the 9th Earl De La Warr, then Mayor of Bexhill, and designed by Erich Mendelsohn and Serge Chermayeff. This exhibition takes that year as a starting point, using local events to indicate the varied social and political landscape of the time. Picture: Arthur Spray, the mysterious cobbler of Bexhill, curing Alice of her headache, 1935. Photographer unknown.

Julian Trevelyan: The Artist and his World

This is the first survey exhibition in 20 years of British artist Julian Trevelyan (1910-1988).  opens at Pallant House Gallery in autumn 2018. A painter, printmaker and designer, Trevelyan was experimental throughout his life and created an important and original body of work that was influenced by European modernist movements yet entirely his own. The exhibition brings together 90 paintings and prints, as well as rarely seen sketchbooks, letters and photographs that emphasise Trevelyan’s extensive contribution to mid-20th century British art. Surveying the broad scope of his career, the exhibition will examine Trevelyan’s early Surrealist works, his depictions of the industrial north of England as part of the Mass Observation project, his fascination with foreign places and his years in London, when he lived and worked alongside the River Thames and taught printmaking at the Royal College of Art.

Chichester Psalms: A Reunion

Venue, date and time to be announced

As part of the Bernstein In Chichester Festival marking the centenary of the birth of the West Side Story composer Leonard Bernstein, former choristers of Chichester Cathedral recall performing his composition the Chichester Psalms in his presence on 31 July 1965. “I remember preparing for and performing in the 1965 concert with great appreciation and affection, and for the challenge of singing something so different and in a language other than Latin or English,” recalls one. “It was indeed a memorable experience, ending with Bernstein visibly appreciative of the performance by the choir and orchestra.” Noel Osborne, a Bass Lay Vicar in the Cathedral Choir from 1963-1976, recalls singing the Chichester Psalms in 1965: “I remember the anticipation ahead of the final Southern Cathedrals Festival concert for the cathedral choirs of Chichester, Salisbury and Winchester, with the Chichester Psalms at the centre of it – and wondering if it would all come together on the day. Would we do justice to the music – and the Hebrew?” Picture of Chichester choristers performing the Chichester Psalms in 1965: Timothy Nott.

Minerva Theatre, Chichester Festival Theatre, Oaklands Park, Chichester.
Saturday-Saturday November 3-December 1, 7.45pm

Tickets from £20

Based on Jane Austen’s incomplete novel, this sparklingly witty play directed by Samuel West looks under the bonnet of Jane Austen and asks: what can characters do when their author abandons them? In this new play by Laura Wade, what happens when the writer loses the plot? Emma Watson is 19 and new in town. She’s been cut off by her rich aunt and dumped back in the family home. Emma and her sisters must marry, fast. If not, they face poverty, spinsterhood, or worse: an eternity with their boorish brother and his awful wife. Luckily there are plenty of potential suitors to dance with, from flirtatious Tom Musgrave to castle-owning Lord Osborne, who’s as awkward as he is rich. So far so familiar. But there’s a problem: Jane Austen didn’t finish the story. Who will write Emma’s happy ending now?
