Join us for this Sunday lunchtime concert with a special programme from Brighton-based contemporary music group CoMA Sussex, led by their celebrated director Steve Dummer, who will be giving a short concert of works by local composers and - with the founder of West Dean College and patron of surrealism Edward James in mind - pieces that are inspired by painting, modern architecture, and the surreal in general.

Doors open at 1pm. Music starts from 1.30pm.

This is a Pay What You Decide event. Please register to secure your seat.

Season tickets for £30 are available in advance following this link and include entry to all five concerts.

Pay What You Decide

Pay What You Decide (PWYD) works by enabling audiences to attend shows without paying for a ticket beforehand, but tickets can be reserved prior to a performance. Then on exiting the show, you have the opportunity to pay what you decide you want to, or can afford to, based on your overall enjoyment of the performance.

Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats.

At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, by cash on the door.

Suggested price bands of £5 and £10.
