The Court

Feel the breeze shift, marking the turn of the seasons. The Wheel of the Year spins anew, unveiling a distant, fleeting realm... Welcome to The Court! Join our coterie, led by Queen Mab; local singer, songwriter, and performance artist.

The Court is a celebration of folklore, folk culture, and folk horror. It's a living zine - a vibrant hub where scholars and artists converge, bonded by a deep affection for ancient tales and rustic mystique. Through talks, stories, and music, we weave a rich tapestry of tradition, wonder, and imagination.

Above, in the theatre, we dive into a world of creativity and exploration, with curated performances and an open mic welcoming all who wish to share their folk-inspired art. Below, in the bar, wander through the enchanting night market, where local artisans showcase their crafted treasures. Our night market runs through-out the evening of The Court, welcoming you at The Yellow Book from 18:00 - 22:00.

Midsummer solstice marks our inaugural event, and we’re delighted to welcome:

Serena Mitchell: A local dancer, performer and rune reader who brings us the stories of the sheela-na-gig.

Joanna Gilar: A Chichester-based poet, storyteller and doctor of fairy tales, whose work explores myth, fairy tale, and ecology.

Abracabadger: A meadowpunk folk juggernaut flowing from the downs, hedgerows, and salty seas of Brighton to bring us musical tales of creatures and nature.
