Following months of diverse contemporary events, the ROOT 1066 International Festival draws to a close on Sunday evening (October 16).

Commissioned by Hastings Borough Council and supported by Arts Council England, the festival featured spectacular outdoor events, performances and exhibitions and exciting participatory projects across 1066 Country, focused in Hastings, Bexhill and Battle.

To mark the end of the festival and its explorations of some of the themes from the past, the Source Park in Hastings will host an innovative audio visual event from artist Zeroh called Work In Progress.

Zeroh said: “Like our other arts events in Hastings we’d like to keep the details of WIP under wraps until you join us on the night.

“What we will say though is that WIP will feature a number of collaborations and experiments (Works In Progress) in sound and projection utilising the unique space and structure of The Source Park and its riders.

“We have a truly great team working with us to mark the ending of what has been an inspiring celebration of all things 1066.”

Tickets are free and will be on a first-come-first-served basis, up to five per booking.
