In a South Downs Way



13 Nov 2016
Time : 3pm
Venue : Minerva Theatre

Conversation, poetry and music inspired by one of Britain’s most beautiful and unspoiled landscapes – with composer Damian Montagu, brass player and former Paul Weller sideman, Stewart Prosser, the Tippett Quartet, and actor Hugh Bonneville, who returns to Chichester after his recent performance as Dr Stockmann in Festival 2016’s An Enemy of the People.

This world premiere live performance of In A South Downs Way also includes the single, The Path Towards Tomorrow, which went straight to No. 1 on the iTunes Classical chart after Hugh chose it as one of his tracks on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs. The recently released album, which itself topped the Official Specialist Classical Chart, is the inaugural work of a project entitled Walk Upon England, which celebrates the countryside as a source of creativity in music and spoken word.

All proceeds will be donated to The Weald & Downland Open Air Museum and Chichester Festival Youth Theatre.
