For the first week of the Newhaven Festival from Saturday 18th till Friday the 24th, St. Michael's church is being transformed into a restorative space to bathe in the sound of Newhaven birdsong.

It's a simple idea. From morning till evening the church is going to be filled with field recordings of birdsong taken in the hills, cliffs and woodlands surrounding our town. You can go for as long or as little as you like. Sit in silence in the beautiful 12th century Norman church and bathe in the surround-sound of birds.

There's no extra info, no chatting, no interactions necessary. Just a longing for some still time in this architectural jewel of the town.
Curated by Alistair Appleton, with field recordings from Newhaven acoustic artist Alice Etteridge and the kind support of Rev. Martin Miller and members of St. Michael's congregation.

During the weekend of the 18th and 19th August, as part of the opening programme of the Festival, Alistair Appleton will be interviewing 36 inhabitants of Newhaven (or fans of the place) in an intimate one-on-one setting. Just five minutes on camera to speak all your thoughts and views on the town and surrounding landscape of Newhaven.

What's your favourite part of the town? What's the downside of living here? What happened for you here? Is there a magic spot that summons memories for you?

In 4 sessions, each an hour and half long, Alistair will interview 9 people per session and their answers will be recorded on video. So it's an intimate chat - but also saved for posterity. If you're happy, your interview will then be woven together into a montage of Newhaveners talking about their town.

You'll need to sign up in advance and book yourself a slot. First come, first served. The location is yet to be announced.
Alistair Appleton is a broadcaster, psychotherapist and meditation teacher.

The Original Theatre Company and York Theatre Royal present Alan Bennett’s The Habit of Art.

Alan Bennett is one our greatest and most celebrated playwrights, with a cavalcade of stage and screen blockbusters including The History Boys, The Madness of King George and Talking Heads.

He is applauded as a genius for his sharp character observations and treasured for the way he beautifully balances wit, wistfulness and compassion.

In The Habit of Art Bennett gives us a play about a meeting between the poet WH Auden and the composer Benjamin Britten. Exploring friendship, rivalry and heartache this multi-layered masterpiece examines the joy, pain and emotional cost of creativity.

This production, directed by Philip Franks, marks the first ever revival of the play and stars the Olivier Award-winning Matthew Kelly (Of Mice and Men, Toast and Pride and Prejudice) and David Yelland (Chariots of Fire and The Crown).

Dick Whittington travels from Gloucester with his cat Thomas, to find his fortune in London. He meets Alice Fitzwarren, who persuades her father to give Dick a job in his shop. The rats of London don't like cats. They steal money from Alderman Fitzwarren and make sure Dick is blamed and dismissed in disgrace. Determined to prove his innocence, with the help of Sarah the Cook and Idle Jack, Dick joins the crew of Captain Cluck's ship on a voyage to the Barbary Coast. The evil leader of the rats causes the ship to sink. Dick and his companions survive only to be brought before the all-powerful Sheikh Yaboddi. He is in an unforgiving mood because his country is overrun with rats. Dick's feline friend saves the day; the adventurers are amply rewarded and return with their reputations restored. Along the way there is song, dance and a massive helping of laughter.
