PEOPLE from across the Wealden and Lewes area are invited to come along and hear details of a new and exciting visual and performing arts society at a meeting in East Hoathly.

The brainchild of Tim Laker, formerly from the village and now living in Buxted, the new group aims to incorporate all aspects of the arts and become a charity.

This would enable it to build a small theatre and possibly an exhibition hall somewhere in East Sussex.

Tim is looking for people who would be able to offer their time to be part of this innovative venture and he pays tribute to the great artistic and cultural traditions of the area, ranging from opera at Glyndebourne to the Lee Miller and Picasso connections at nearby Farley Farm.

He is looking for individuals who can provide expertise or offer workshops at every level.

He would particularly like to hear from anyone who would like to learn new skills.

The inaugural meeting of the society will be held on Friday, March 23, at 7.30pm at The King’s Head, East Hoathly, but Tim assures everyone, while he has close connections with the community, the new theatre or hall could be built almost anywhere.

Everyone aged between nine and 90 is welcome but if you can’t make it and want to get involved contact Tim Laker at performingarts2012@yahoo.co.uk
