Q

Meet a local resident whose new adaptation of Dracula is coming to The Spire for Halloween...

Queen’s Park Person - Gary Sefton Actor and theatre director Gary Sefton lives in St Luke’s Terrace. His new adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula is coming to The Spire at the end of October. Dracula. It promises again to be an exciting, immersive, fastpaced, physical and bold story-telling experience, set in the brilliantly evocative and spooky Spire.

How long have you lived in Queen’s Park? We moved here from London after falling in love with Brighton in 2000. On April Fools’Day! So, 18 years ago and we’ve never looked back. What do you most like about the area? I like its sense of community. The people. All of our children went to, or are currently at, St Luke’s and we have made lifelong friends through this brilliant school. I love the views over the sea, how quick you can get onto the Downs and of course Queen’s Park.

Tell us more about your production of Dracula… After the huge success of Christmas Carol it felt like we needed a new venture. So instead of trying to do a better Christmas show, we’ve turned our sights onto another major celebration in Brighton - Halloween! This time with another classic - Bram Stoker’s

Do you prefer acting or directing? I prefer directing to be honest, although I am acting in this one too. I like making theatre, telling stories, taking audiences on journeys. I always try to direct from the audience’s point of view. I want them to become part of the experience. When you act, often you only really have to think about your own individual journey through the story, but as a director you have a bigger job, more responsibility, to the whole, and that’s what I enjoy most. I also love working collaboratively, letting actors and other creatives try new things and to make the experience together. What do you like to do when you’re not working? I don’t really enjoy not working! I like cycling with the kids, going to the gym, swimming and eating out, but I usually have some project or new idea on the go! Dracula is at The Spire, St Mark’s Chapel, Eastern Road, from 24 October to 4 November. To book tickets, visit truestory-theatre.com.

Events for all ages...

Brighton Science Festival... The Brighton Science Festival is back this October.

For young folks (age 7-14) and parents, Hands-On HalfTerm is back in various places around Brighton (October 20-26). The concept is simple: you look out for people who would like to show young people extraordinary things and help them do extraordinary things, then you let people know about it. The result is an avalanche of humanity romping through the nooks and crannies of Brighton, having a whale of a time and learning new skills, from sewing to computer programming, to space flight to Einstein.

For adults, The Big Monstrous Day (Sunday October 28) will be dealing with monstrous subjects in this 200th anniversary year of Frankenstein. In modern times we are seeing the ascendance of Frankensteinianism: we can modify the genomes of our beloveds (puppies at the moment, children soon); we can use surgery and medicine to extend our lives by decades; we regularly donate our body parts to others; we have robots replacing us in the workplace; we are being watched, judged and manipulated by social media and internet monsters. We will hear all about these and debate the issues. Big Science Saturday (Saturday October 27) has speakers on six different and fascinating topics. For more information, visit www.brightonscience.com.

News from Queens Park Tennis Club...

Queens Park wins B&H Parks League Title Queens Park Tennis Club secured the 2018 Parks League title in August after leading the First Division from the very first week of the competition back in April. Last year’s champions Dyke Park were runners up, and Saltdean third.

Congratulations to Jacob Chadwick (captain), Brenda Maguire, Wendy Powell, Evelin Potocnik, Katie Moorman, Kate Buchanan, David Brockman, Alastair Quarton, Matt Hassell, Sam Waller-Carr and Rhys Daniel. The Brighton & Hove Parks League, established in 1930, features 40 teams from 12 clubs competing across four leagues. Played exclusively on public parks courts in Brighton & Hove, the league has over 600 registered participants.

Queens take possession of the Beckett Challenge Shield title for a record 23rd time, making QPTC the most successful club in the history of the Parks League, ahead of Hollingbury and Hove (both 20 wins). Congratulations also to Queens 'A', who finished top of Division Two, and will play in Division 1 next

season. They were led by Sam Waller-Carr (Queens ‘A’ captain) alongside Jon Clack, Stephen Wright, Patricio Sanchez, Sandrine Milland, Katie Johnson, Lucy Ditchburn, Michelle Macaree, Chris Anderson, Isabel Roffe-Silvester, Luke Shoham and Fraser Hurley. “It really is a wonderful achievement this year of all years when so much has been happening at Queens. It's a real boost for the club,” said club secretary Pauline O’Reilly.

It was the ladies who won it, explains team captain Jacob Chadwick: “We had a squad of five of some of the best ladies players in the league – all very experienced and committed to Thursday night matches. It was often more of a head-scratcher as to who I leave out of the team, rather than who I put in – a rare problem for a captain in this league.” “While QPTC perhaps doesn’t have the very top individual male singles players in the league, it’s getting close. The strength on the men’s side came from the depth of field and doubles-ability, and our starting four at the outset of the season – Matt Hassell, Rhys Daniel, Joel Pearcey and David Brockman – did a great job. But the ability of the substitutes to earn consistent points was, by the end of the season, equally as important.” Find out more about Queens Park Tennis Club at www.qptc.co.uk Conrad Brunner

Just one concert this month at St Luke’s Church…

Hanover Queens WI

Music and Wine at St Luke’s...

Our next meeting is on Thursday 11th October and will be our AGM – with wine and cheese to help the evening along. Find us upstairs at the Islingword Inn, 175 Queen’s Park Road, from 7.30 to 9.30pm. You’d be very welcome if you’d like to come along.

On Friday 12th October we welcome back Klio Blonz (flute) and Grace Mo (piano) who will be joined by violinist Fenella Humphreys to present their trio concert: A Musical Offering.

Recipe of the month Chicken in Vermouth

• Put three and a half cups of frozen peas in a large roasting dish with crushed garlic, two to three chopped leeks and a half cup (generous one!) of dry vermouth. • Place chicken thighs on top with seasoning and olive oil. • Cook for 45 mins approximately at 200/gas 6.

They will perform Bach’s grandiose Trio from The Musical Offering, paving the way to the 21st century and Luckett’s Premiere for solo flute. Time is suspended with Messiaen's Theme and Variations for violin and piano while bursting flavours and colourful soundscapes will emerge through the works of Ravel, Rota and Piazzolla. “I'd do everything I could to give everyone a moment of happiness. That's what's at the heart of my music.” Nino Rota

We’re then having a break until November 23rd to give you time to enjoy Brighton’s Early Music Festival (BREMF). The concert takes place at St Luke’s Church, Queen’s Park Road, Brighton BN2 9ZB, and starts at 7.30pm.

News of a new project from QueenSpark Books...

Help wanted to bring Brighton history archives alive! Would you like to play an important role in preserving and promoting Brighton and Hove’s unique heritage and learn new skills? QueenSpark Books, the UK’s longest-running community publisher, has been documenting the lives of local people since 1972. They are looking for volunteers for their Heritage Lottery funded project Archives Alive.

The community-run organisation has published over 100 books, including e-books and graphic novels, recording largely hidden histories of Brighton & Hove from 1850 to the present day. These include seminal books such as Backyard/ Back Street Brighton which depicts the slum clearances of the 1930s to1950s, Daring Hearts about the experiences of LGBTQ people in the 1950s and 1960s, and Brighton Transformed, a recent book about the city’s trans*gender community. QueenSpark Books began as part of a residents’ campaign to convert the 1824 Royal Spa in Queen’s Park to a nursery school instead of a planned casino. The struggle succeeded, aided by the circulation of a street newspaper called QueenSpark, which provided information about the campaign, and also the sparchives column, focusing on a series of reminiscences of the area.

Sadly, the majority of QueenSpark books are now out of print and much of its unique archive of texts, voice recordings and photographs are stored away in boxes and under-utilised. The concern is that this material will eventually deteriorate and be lost forever. Archives Alive will ensure this important ‘people’s history’ of the city – the only one of its kind – will be revitalised and made available to everyone.

Archives Alive Project Co-ordinator Ali Ghanimi said: “We are looking for volunteers who can spare a few hours per week or month to help us organise the archives and make them accessible. This will involve sifting through the material, selecting and publishing four new books and creating a new interactive website. This will be a great project for anyone with an interest in Brighton’s diverse and fascinating history. Who knows what these ‘archive detectives’ will uncover in the process?” No specific skills are necessary as training and guidance will be provided by experts.

This is a great opportunity for people wanting to develop skills and experience in history archives, book publishing and web development. Anyone interested in volunteering should email ali@queensparkbooks.org.uk

One winter’s night, a snowman comes to life and an unforgettable adventure begins. Discover the magic for yourself. For more information, visit brightonmuseums.org.uk

The Masterpiece Tour reflects the National Gallery’s commitment to promoting the understanding, study and appreciation of its collection to as wide an audience as possible. A major Gallery painting is touring the UK each year between 2018 and 2020. The painting is one of Hans Holbein the Younger’s earliest English portraits and one of his most engaging and beautiful works. This touching portrait holds many secrets to decode. Alongside this 16th century masterpiece, the functions and meanings of portraiture from the period will be explored through a selection of works from Brighton Museum’s own collection. The picture will be on its final stop before returning home, so don’t miss this unique opportunity to see it here in Brighton.
