Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel

Thursday 15th February - Doors Open at 7pm. Show Starts at 7:30pm

Magical and dark, this is perhaps the most popular operatic fairy tale of them all. Brother and sister Hansel & Gretel are drawn into the idyllic yet dangerous world of the forest, where they encounter the Sandman, the Dew Fairy and, most frightening of all, the Witch. In the dizzying excitement of the Witch’s Ride and the serene beauty of the children’s evening prayer, Humperdinck’s music magically evokes the contrasting worlds of the story. A story that will enchant and thrill, a wintry delight.

★★★★★ This is opera for everyone, in the best possible way.

★★★★ a performance that leaves rival fringe companies in their icing-sugar dust.

★★★★ Pop Up Opera prove that by putting on intimate operas such as these can prove just as effective as anything you might see on a bigger stage. It is playful and entertaining from beginning to end.

★★★★ Five singers play the opera's seven characters and they are all first-rate.

★★★★★ You must make every effort to see this

★★★★ A perfect introduction to the world of opera, and lots of fun for all ages – an experience that shouldn’t be missed!

★★★★ What more could one say about it? Just brilliant. 

★★★★★ Opera at it’s best is an amazing combination of music and drama and Pop up Opera have both in spades.

The Young'uns: The Ballad of Johnny Longstaff

Thursday 22nd March - Doors: 7pm

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.
