Look ahead to autumn evenings closing in with a heady mix of entertainment at the De La Warr Pavilion.
Its comedy programme kicks off on October 9 with a special show by national treasure Jennifer Saunders who will be reading from her new book Bonkers. A copy of the book is included in the ticket price. On Friday October 11, Stewart Francis, Craig Campbell and Glenn Wool take the stage as The Lumberjacks – three top Canadian comics all on one bill. Direct from his hit TV show The Last Leg Australian comic Adam Hills performs on November 2 and later on in the month, on 23, Paul Merton will be on stage with his improvisation chums, a show based entirely on suggestions from the audience.
Already announced in the Observer is a performance by 80s pop princess Lisa Stansfield, performing as part of her world tour on November 3. Glastonbury stars Daughter perform on October 16 and the indiefolk theme continues with Radio 2 Folk Award-winners 2013 Lau (Nov 21) and American band Yo La Tengo (Dec 7). Bexhill is also part of folk legends The Waterboys’ 25th Anniversary Tour on December 14 and Liane Carroll will sing with the East Sussex Youth Orchestra on December 20.
The DLWP’s classical slot this season is on November 7 and features the award-winning Schubert Ensemble, one of the world’s leading exponents of music for piano and strings.
Two popular acts return to the stage, bound for sell-out performances. The ever popular Moscow Ballet La Classique returns with Swan Lake on Sunday October 27. And back by popular demand on 8 December are The Sugar Dandies, who will be leading a Christmas Tea Dance and Cabaret called The Christmas Blend. Tickets – which include tea and cake – are limited so tickets should be booked well in advance. The DLWP is also hoping to surprise audiences with something more experimental - and it doesn’t get much more experimental than a live show featuring grindcore outfit Nepalm Death and ceramic artist Keith Harrison. Considered too experimental for London, this free show at DLWP will be a unique, one-off event. Friday November 27.
All details are now available in the new autumn brochure listing DLWP’s upcoming events. These are available at the Pavilion and at other outlets around the town.
DLWP’s Sally Ann Lycett said: “We have listened to our visitors and it is clear, now we are presenting such a diverse and regular programme, in the auditorium, that a brochure is something that people were keen to have in their homes so they can plan their evenings out.”
