Eco-focused songs aiming to make you feel good

A UNIQUE ‘eco’ concert will kick off the autumn season of events at the Lewes Railway Land’s Linklater Pavilion. Jess Gold’s Animated Earth begins at 7.30pm on Sunday, September 9.

Described as a Green Victoria Wood, Jess is a talented singer-songwriter and is promoting her first ever concert tour of its kind: unashamedly eco-focused songs performed with the specific intention of making people feel good.

Cartoonist Danny Fenster will be creating satirical cartoons during the show, bringing to life ideas offered by the audience. They will be auctioned at the end of the evening to augment proceeds.

Tickets at £9 can be ordered online at or purchased from the Union Music Store in Friars Walk.

Jess will be joined by Luke Concannon, chart-topping song writer of JCB song/Nizlopi fame, who will bring to the evening his signature style of exuberant and soulful hip hop folk that will delight old friends and new.

Director of the Railway Land Project, John Parry, said: “We want to reach different audiences in different ways and I hope this event will be of interest to younger adults.”

The Linklater autumn series will continue with a fascinating bat evening; a talk and demonstration of the flint walls of Sussex; and an illustrated lecture on environmental changes in Sussex over the last 40 years by former Chairman of the Sussex Wildlife Trust, Alan Malpass.

Tickets for these events are £6 and will be available on the door or in advance from Harveys in Cliffe High Street and Ieko on School Hill, Lewes.
