The Bell in Ticehurst is the home of Rosemary Lane Day, a celebration of the musicianship, songwriting and enduring legacy of Bert Jansch, whose album Rosemary Lane was recorded in the village.
Events during Rosemary Lane Day include live folk performances, children’s activities, poetry and workshops. All of this takes place in the most glorious surroundings of the classic countryside surroundings of East Sussex.
Rosemary Lane Day, 31 July 2016
Rosemary Lane Day is back at The Bell in Ticehurst – the East Sussex village where Bert recorded the album in 1971 – for a second year, and this time it's free! Join us on Sunday 31 July for live music acts, Bert playalong around the fire pit, children's activities, poetry and a Bert Transcribed guitar workshop (£15/£10 concs) based on Bert's techniques. To book the workshop, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rosemary Lane Day, 22 August 2015
The inaugural Rosemary Lane Day at The Bell in Ticehurst on Saturday 22 August 2015 celebrates the musicianship, songwriting and enduring legacy of Bert Jansch, his time in Ticehurst recording Rosemary Lane and his patronage of The Bell.
As well as a sterling line up of Bonnie Dobson & Her Boys, Trembling Bells, Jon Allen, Polly and the Billets Doux, The Princes in The Tower, Noisey Toys and more, we are especially delighted that the organisers have invited LUNIR, and thereby providing a platform to Bert Jansch Napier scholars Becky Sikasa and David Scobie.
