Polari has been awarded a Grant for the Arts from Arts Council England to fund a series of six events over six months at the Printworks in Hastings.
“A stimulating and fun night out” – Hastings Independent
Polari on Sea launched on June 30 with local authors
VG Lee (pictured right) and Jonathan Broughton,
plus visiting writers Neil Bartlett and Alice Denny.
The venue was packed and the audience reaction
was overwhelmingly positive. Feedback forms rated
the event “excellent”, with people commenting on “the
variety of the readers”, “the great space and atmosphere”
and “the mixed drama of direct experience, fiction and fun”.
One added “Hastings needs more events like this!”
7pm doors. 7.30pm start. £8 or £6 concessions from
Eventbrite or OND.
The season ends on November 23 with Diana Souhami,
Gerry Potter, VG Lee, Charles Neal and Susan Lelliott
