St Mary in the Castle
Pelham Place, Hastings TN34 3AF
Entrance to the left of the café

The festival opens with a launch night of sounds, sights and surprises at St Mary in the Castle to challenge your perceptions of this familiar and well-loved local space. Curated by visual arts specialists ZEROH, the evening will hail the opening of the festival in a unique and spectacular way.

The theme of the evening, The Dawn Chorus, is inspired in part by the unveiling of Kate MccGwire’s commissioned sculpture and will herald the start of this year’s festival. The multi-layered ceremony will be a visual and audio representation of the journey from night to day utilising the unique environment at St Mary’s.

Evolving over the course of the evening, this one-off special event includes singers, multi-instrumentalists and sound artists, culminating in an incredible performance that you won’t want to miss.

Over the coming weeks more clues about the ceremony will be revealed here and at

We hope you’ll join us,

ZEROH & the Coastal Currents Team
