What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
On the third Wednesday of every month, at St Leonards Kino-teatr, come to the Bavard Bar. Like TED talks, but for us ‘regular’ people. Hear three people share their stories and passions for about 15 minutes each, with time for questions and drinking after each speaker. Past talks have included: the 90's Zine scene, Hair, Lord Haw Haw, Luxembourg and the Irish. Like a 70s ‘Jamboree’ bag, you never know what you’re going to get till you turn up…sad or funny, ordinary or extraordinary… Including a bit of wild card improv nonsense with the KP Lite challenge…got what it takes? Come and join the BBC (the Bavard Bar Club). You never know what you might hear. Or who you might meet… For more details, visit http://www.bavardbar.co.uk or contact Tim:[masked] Tickets are £7, available from the venue itself or online from: https://www.kino-teatr.co.uk/events
Watch the Hastings Bonfire procession and fireworks. Free event but donations welcome. See http://www.hbbs.info/ The procession starts at 7.15pm at White Rock and finishes by 9.00pm at the beach at Pelham Place. I am proposing to watch the procession from the elevated footpath opposite the First In Last Out (FILO) pub in the High Street. This is where some of us stood for the past two years. I estimate it will pass that point from about 8pm, so I suggest meeting between 7.30pm and 8pm either in the FILO or outside. If you are walking or driving from the Bexhill / St Leonards direction you will need get into the Old Town before the procession starts or you won't get through. The seafront road will be closed (to traffic, not pedestrians) between the White Rock Theatre and the Old Town between 6pm and 10.30pm. We can follow the procession down to the beach to watch the bonfire and fireworks from 9.00pm. In my experience, you don't need to get close to the bonfire to see everything. It will be busy but we won't have trouble finding somewhere to stand. David[masked]
See "The Garry Blakeley Band" at Pissarro's. "Foot stomping, fiddle folk". https://www.facebook.com/events/479318106225706/ Meet me in the bar from about 9.30pm. I cannot set a specific time because I will be coming from the fireworks on Pelham Beach, which start at 9pm. Near to Hastings railway station for trains and buses. Also, car park just outside.

The meeting is open to anyone who reads this month’s book which is ‘Everything I Never Told You’ by Celeste Ng. This is a small and friendly group where readers can say as little or as much as they like. As you read the book, if you think of any points suitable for discussion, make a note of them!
