SATURDAY 23 DECEMBER – LET’S GET THIS PARTY STARTED
GET YOUR TICKETS HERE.
It doesn’t seem a year ago that Lewes branch was having a party, doesn’t time fly when we’ve got the Tories on the run? With the generous support of the RMT and Unison Labour Link, our 2017 seasonal night out will be even bigger, bolder and brassier than 2016’s.
The centrepiece of the night is a massive coup, bringing the hugely talented spoken word performer Luke Wright to Lewes to perform his hit Edinburgh Fringe show Frankie Vah. Travel back in time to 1987, the miners strike, Red Wedge and Neil Kinnock with Frankie Vah as he struggles to find something to believe while gorging on love, radical politics, and skuzzy indie stardom. Expect frenetic music, visceral verse, and a Morrissey-sized measure of heartache.
While opening the night hot foot from Brighton v Watford the original 1980s punk football poet Attila the Stockbroker celebrates the then, and now, of keeping on, complete with thrash mandola. ‘Veteran’ of the 1980’s New Variety Comedy circuit Kit Hardy will be reminding us too via jokes and wisecracks of what we used to laugh at back then.
Pack your dancing shoes too for South London soulful sensations Ese and the Vooduu People making their Lewes debut with a unique mix of rock, funk and grunge. Add an unrivalled Two Tone and Indie soundtrack and the dancefloor-filling will be non stop.
