Feast of the Dead, Hastings, September 2016

Later this year, in commemoration of the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings, we will be collaborating with long standing friends of Blanch & Shock, Dens and Signals.

More details are coming soon, but in the meantime here is a little teaser:

As night fell on 14th October 1066, thousands of men lay dead in a field. Some were English, some Norman, some Breton, or Belgian or Scot. And none would ever again see their families, their land… or their dinner.

We invite you to join us to conjure their ghosts, and to remember all those who fell in this most cataclysmic moment of our history.

Our team of performers and musicians will take you on an anarchic ride through the aftermath of a battle which still affects our daily lives. Expect an entertaining communal experience about the past, the present and the future.

We’ll serve a delicious and unique meal, inspired by eleventh century food, sourced from local suppliers.

Whether you're Norman, Anglo-Saxon, or just hungry - come dressed as a battlefield ghost, and ready to raise a glass to the past.
