Eileen Cooper Book Launch

Very sadly I realise that I have to postpone our book launch for Eileen Cooper this Saturday. My broken ankle means I am totally unable to organise it, and we have builders here and Francis is still very weak.  Eileen and I will reorganise a date in spring and you will be able to meet her then.

Meanwhile click here for details of her sumptuous monograph which has an excellent introduction by the eminent art historian Martin Gayford.  You can buy a copy from Amazon and ask Eileen to sign it when she comes here next spring.

The works Eileen has made inspired by Aldeburgh have been selling fast, but there are a few left, click here to view


HighTide Festival 2015

This year the Aldeburgh Beach Lookout is delighted to host HighTide's 'Dream Play' by Baz Productions.

"Dream Play is a response to August Strindberg’s A Dream Play; a fantastical quest story exploring what it means to be human. Our patchwork showing will use live music, improvisation, movement and storytelling to investigate the nature of dreams and why we need them to comprehend our existence" Catherine Bailey of Baz Productions

Friday 18th September – 19.00
Saturday 19th September – 15.00 and 19.00
Sunday 20th September – 11.00

This is a non-ticketed event, so just come along!

Pebble Homage Installation and Show

May 2015 - for one year

Pebble Homage is a participative art installation at the Aldeburgh Beach Lookout, to coicide with Antony Gormley's sculpture on top of Aldeburgh's Martello Tower.

You will be given a marker pen and invited to choose a pebble from the beach.  As you walk towards the Martello Tower and back we challenge you to think about life and to write a short thought on your pebble.  These pebbles will be collected together to form an installation.  In one year's time they will be scatterd over the beach to be found by future generations.

This will be accompanied by a Pebble Homage selling exhibition inside the Lookout including works by

Antony Gormley

Roger Hardy

Henri Matisee

Tessa Newcomb

Peter Randall Page

Ai Wei Wei
