Dudley Sutton

'Idle Hands'

Saturday 4th July


Dudley Sutton is an English actor, he currently plays William Makepeace in Emmerdale.  

Dudley embarks upon his residency here at the Lookout this week at the age of 82.
Dudley says

"The devil soon finds work for idle hands so, during the many idle hours of an essentially idle man, I write, perform and illustrate, my own verse. which I have spouted at clubs and pubs, and often on Resonance FM, and have got away with it, up to now.  

I shall be bringing my own small press to The Lookout, where I hope to produce verse and linocuts and, on the Open Day, to enable visitors to do the same, based on short rhymes written by themselves or better, created on the spot.         

I will also be showing and offering for sale, prints from a set of 16 illustrations of my poem ‘Tommy The Tomcat Of St Ives,’ to be found on Youtube under the title ‘Subterranean Homesick Pussycat.’ As it is Aldeburgh, I will also be producing images (and a poem) derived from boats. An Artist’s Residency, at the age of 82 - an exciting and strange departure for me."


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
