Dicker Legends Cabaret (Dicker Players production)
Saturday 09 & 10 December 2016
| 7:45pm
The Dicker Players have been performing their ever popular annual Cabaret at different venues for over 40 years. We are delighted to return to the Hailsham Pavilion for our second year.
The evening contains sketches, comedy routines and songs but, be warned, much of the material is of an adult nature which might cause offence. The show contains extremely strong language so is unsuitable for children.
This year so many great celebrities have died that we have created a Cabaret style show as a tribute to them, hence the “Legends” tag.
Expect to see and hear material to celebrate the brilliance of Prince, Bowie, Ronnie Corbett, Victoria Wood, Caroline Aherne, Terry Wogan, Gene Wilder… to name but a few. This will be supplemented with material on the shady subject of “Death”… PLUS other stuff that just makes us laugh, we know you will too.
Tickets are £10.00 and available through the Pavilion box office (01323 841414) or online.

New Year Favourites - Chris Farlowe with the Norman Beaker Band (Spyboy promotion)
Sunday 15 January 2017
| 7:30pm

Those of you who can cast your minds back to the mid sixties may well remember Chris Farlowe’s fine band, the Thunderbirds which featured amongst others the great guitarist Albert Lee and drummer Carl Palmer (later of Emerson - Lake and Palmer fame).
However success for Chris didn’t come until a few years later when he teamed up with Andrew Loog Oldham, the Rolling Stones’ manager, and consequently got to record some Jagger/Richards compositions that included “Out of Time”, undoubtedly his biggest hit single as it raced to number one.
A string of chart successes followed, notably the Mike d’Abo (Manfred Mann) penned (and revived for Ricky Gervais & The Office!) “Handbags and Gladrags”.
During his career Chris Farlowe has fronted such celebrated bands as Colosseum and Atomic Rooster and today with the Norman Beaker Band you’ll find “the white man with a black man’s voice” as he was once described, more soulful than ever.
Here is Chris with the Norman Beaker Band “The Guitar Don’t Lie”.

Tickets are £20.00 and available through the Pavilion box office (01323 841414) or online.

Slim Chance - still playing the music of Ronnie Lane (Spyboy promotion)
Friday 03 February 2017
| 7:30pm

Slim Chance have come together to celebrate the music of one of the shining lights of the ’60s and ’70s British music scene and the man who formed the band after leaving The Faces, Ronnie Lane, who tragically died in 1997 after his much-publicised twenty year battle with multiple sclerosis.
Over time there have been many musicians who worked with Ronnie, as part of Slim Chance and its offshoots.
The present line includes original members Steve Simpson, Charlie Hart and Steve Bingham who are joined by Geraint Watkins, John Lingwood, Des Horsfall, and Jim Russell, but this is merely the tip of the iceberg for over the years there have been contributions by such illustrious musicians as Benny Gallagher, Graham Lyle, Henry McCullough, Ian McClagan, Ian Stewart, Pete Townshend and Mick Weaver.
Ronnie Lane believed in life, music, friends, and having a good time, sentiments that his band, Slim Chance have inherited and will undoubtedly bring to the Pavilion for this very special show.

Tickets are £19.50 and available through the Pavilion box office (01323 841414) or online.

Celtic Fiddle Festival (Spyboy promotion)
Saturday 25 February 2017
| 7:30pm

Described as three of the finest folk violinists anywhere by The Washington Post, Celtic Fiddle Festival celebrates the violin in all its globe-trotting variations.
Fiddlers Kevin Burke (Ireland), Christian Lemaître (Brittany, France) and Capercaillie's Charlie McKerron (Scotland) showcase a fascinating juxtaposition of international and individual styles.
Sold-out tours and standing ovations give testimony to the electricity and excitement generated by the group.
Along with acclaimed guitarist Nicholas Quéméner from Brittany, the quartet combines their talents, musical traditions, and spontaneous humour for an evening of dazzling energy and subtle grace.
Celtic Fiddle Festival was originally conceived as a unique touring project in 1992, by Kevin Burke, now a resident of Portland, Oregan, but who had been a mainstay of several seminal Irish supergroups, from The Bothy Band to the all-star Irish group Patrick Street, and had toured and recorded with countless artists including Kate Bush, Arlo Guthrie, Paul Brady and Christy Moore.
Three sensational fiddlers from three distinct Celtic traditions. Jazz and rock musicians should take note: bravura, lightning-fast playing is rarely such exhilarating fun. Breathtaking! – The Boston Herald

Tickets are £20.00 and available through the Pavilion box office (01323 841414) or online.

Strawbs (Full Electric Show) (Spyboy promotion)
Saturday 25 March 2017
| 7:30pm

The Strawbs are often mentioned in the same breath as progressive rock bands like Yes, King Crimson, & The Moody Blues.
The band emerged out of the British Folk Movement of the mid-1960s, starting life as the Strawberry Hill Boys playing bluegrass.
Their 1967 debut, “All Our Own Work,” featured singer Sandy Denny a year before she joined Fairport Convention.
The current Strawbs line-up comprises Dave Cousins, undoubtedly the heart and soul of the band, lead guitarist Dave Lambert, bass player Chas Cronk, and drummer Tony Fernandez, who recorded and toured together in the 1970s.
They are joined by keyboard virtuoso Dave Bainbridge of the group Iona.
The Strawbs’ album “Hero & Heroine” has been listed by Rolling Stone magazine as “one of the fifty greatest prog rock albums of all time” and they will undoubtedly play tracks from this album along with all other Strawbs favourites.

Tickets are £21.50 and available through the Pavilion box office (01323 841414) or online.

Nancy Kerr and the Sweet Visitor Band (Spyboy promotion)
Saturday 29 April 2017
| 7:30pm

Voted Folk Singer of the Year at the 2016 BBC Folk Awards, influential singer-violinist Nancy Kerr brings her Sweet Visitor Band that includes, James Fagan (Cara Dillon, The James Bros), Tom Wright (Albion Band, and Eliza Carthy Band), Rowan Rheingans (Lady Maisery) and top bassist Tim Yates (Blackbeard’s Tea Party) to the Pavilion.

Already a respected interpreter of traditional material, Nancy’s emergence as a writer of rare style has drawn comparisons to William Blake in her reawakening of a radical folk mythology as a backdrop for contemporary narratives about love and conflict, migration, hardship and jubilation, and the tensions between rural and urban life.

Tickets are £19.50 and available through the Pavilion box office (01323 841414) or online.
