Tickets and times for Stanmer House this Sunday

Friday, July 3rd, 2009

It’s just a few days away and the current forecast is sunny! The doors open at 7:45pm, but I’d recommend getting down there early and spending the afternoon in the beautiful surroundings with a barbecue and a few cold beers.

Here are the times:

Marquee

The Leisure Society 11:10pm
Peggy Sue 10:00pm
Sons of Noel and Adrian 8:55pm
Robert Stillman 7:55pm

Inside the house

Alessi’s Ark 10:35pm
Pete Roe 9:30pm
Caroline Weeks 8:25pm

Here’s a link showing the bus route from the Old Steine, you get the number 25 and it takes about 38 minutes including the walk into Stanmer Park. There are regular trains to Falmer from Brighton and it’s about a 10-15 minute walk from there. Sadly the last train back to Brighton from Falmer is at 23:26 but I believe buses run all night, a taxi will cost about £10-12.

Resident is now SOLD OUT but there are currently 16 tickets left on wegottickets.com/willkommen, then we’re totally sold out. I’ll post on here if there are any tickets left on the day but it looks unlikely.

Another Stanmer House addition! Robert Stillman

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

The overflowing Stanmer House lineup has a new addition. Recently seen playing keys with Grizzly Bear, Robert Stillman‘s own music exists “somewhere between the fairground, the rural parlor, and the stars” and is influenced by the likes of John Fahey, Kurt Weill, Scott Joplin, and Maurice Ravel.

The lineup also includes The Leisure Society, Alessi’s Ark, Peggy Sue, Sons of Noel and Adrian, Laura Marling’s pianist and banjo player Pete Roe and Caroline Weeks of Bat for Lashes. The event takes place in Grade I listed stately home Stanmer House on Sunday July 5th, tickets cost just £12 from wegottickets.com or Resident Records, 28 Kensington Gardens, Brighton, 01273 606312.

Sons of Noel and Adrian perform live film score this Saturday at the legendary Roundhouse

Wednesday, June 10th, 2009

The day after our Union Chapel show this Friday, the Willkommen fun continues as Sons of Noel and Adrian collaborate with Kopek to perform a live soundtrack to the 1928 silent Surrealist classic La Coquille et le clergyman.
The event is called Think in Oceans and also sees the exciting new project from Caroline Weeks and friends The Collectress perform to Sergei Parajanov’s masterpiece, The Colour of Pomegranates. The organiser Ben Pritchard writes:

“It was the Edwardian hero Admiral Jackie Fisher who exhorted his audience to ‘Think in Oceans’. Whilst this inclination may have served to sharpen his tools, it is a message which also inspired some of the greatest worldly discovers, and now lends itself to a silent film night taking in the wonders of Armenian culture and sexually driven members of the clergy. Ticking the boxes?”

Think in Oceans takes place this Saturday (13 June) at the Roundhouse.  More details and tickets here.

Caroline Weeks added to Stanmer House bill

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

We are delighted to announce that Willkommen favourite Caroline Weeks has joined the lineup for our exciting Stanmer House show. She joins The Leisure Society, Alessi’s Ark, Peggy Sue and Sons of Noel and Adrian in what is shaping up to be the best gig we’ve ever put on. Caroline Weeks is an extremely talented singer songwriter and some time member of Bat For Lashes, with whom she recently toured France. This is a special appearance ahead of her tour of America. There are more acts still to be announced.

Over half the tickets have already flown out of the door so buy quickly. You can get them from wegottickets.com here or from Resident Records in Kensington Gardens, Brighton, 01273 606312.
