Saturday Morning Music Events – Free Concerts at the UGT Every Saturday

Highlighting Local Performers

18th February 2017 – 10am – 12 noon. Venue Opens at 9.30am

A musical duo with a wealth of talent is returning to the Eastbourne Under Ground Theatre in the New Year. Just over twelve months since their previous appearance, the coffee-morning entertainment on Saturday 18th February will be provided by Pocketsize. That’s Eastbourne-based Darren Pearson (guitar) and wife Liz (autoharp) and joined by Richard Walder on T-chest bass


The mixture will be “a little bit country, a little bit rock ’n’ roll” with a generous helping of American folk and spirituals and original compositions. They could possibly be recruiting one or two friends from the local music scene, as they have done in the past, to make the morning even more memorable!

This will be the fifth year in a row that “Pocketsize” have appeared during the first month of the theatre’s January to April season. The Duo once topped the American charts in 1999 with the single “Walking”, taken from their first-ever album.

Throughout their performance, Fairtrade coffee and tea and home-made cakes will be on sale in the Under Ground coffee-bar – which will stay open until 4pm for viewing of the latest foyer art exhibition.

Entry is free.

With regret there is no wheelchair access to the venue.
