Magic Flute

Friday 16th March - Doors: 7pm Show Starts at 7:30pm

The Magic Flute – directed and adapted for Opera Anywhere by Susan Moore

A young man with a passion for books reads about a magical kingdom where ‘day’ and ‘night’ wage war against each other.  As he reads he is consumed by the story, so much so that he realises that he has fallen into his own fantasy world.  He meets the Queen of the Night and her mortal enemy, the leader of the Sun Temple, the mighty Sarastro.  The Queen and her Three Ladies charge him with a quest, to rescue the Queen’s daughter, the beautiful Pamina, who has been kidnapped by Monostatos, a henchman working for Sarastro.  Accompanied by the bird catcher, Papageno, the young man, Tamino, starts a voyage of discovery as he searches for love, truth and consequently a purpose higher than himself, with only his Magic Flute and Three Boys to guide him.

The Young'uns: The Ballad of Johnny Longstaff

Thursday 22nd March - Doors open 7:00pm. Start 7:30pm

Twice BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners the Young’uns present a timely tale of a boy who walked out of poverty, a teenager who stood up to racism, a soldier who fought fascism and an old man who inspired a new generation. From the shadow of the Teesside shipyards, to the banks of the Thames. From Cable Street to the Spanish Civil War. Johnny Longstaff bore witness to some of the most defining moments of the early 20th century. Before he died, he recorded his story in words which were harrowing, hilarious, poignant, proud and ultimately uplifting. With their trademark harmony and humour the Teesside trio present an urgent suite of songs interwoven with Johnny’s own voice and rare images to tell an amazing story.

EXHIBITIONS

banner image for exhibition section

The crypt gallery at St Mary in the Castle is an exhibition space unique to the building. With its rich history as a burial for members of the Churches congregation, the crypt is brimming with atmosphere and intrigue. The alcoves make it a perfect space for group shows, or for dividing different aspects of your work, and lends itself to the installation of multi-media artworks.

The space has been used to exhibit the art of international and local artists and has been a key location for local arts festivals, including Coastal Currents and the PhotoHastings season.

St Mary in the Castle has played host to numerous high profile exhibitions, most notably a Lee Miller and Roland Penrose Surrealist Exhibition that ran alongside a performance in our auditorium of ‘The Angel and the Fiend’, a dramatic reading of the life of Lee Miller.

Running concurrently with major exhibitions at the De La Warr Pavilion, St Mary in the Castle has begun hosting exhibitions in partnership with Project Artworks.

As well as being located in the centre of Hastings, the space receives through traffic from the St Marys restaurant and attendees to the many St Mary in the Castle events.

Here at St Marys we endeavour to have an excellent visual arts program that compliments the beauty of the building and places us at the centre of the emerging arts scene here in Hastings.
