What's the Ripple? Hopefully the start of something big!
It’s a coming together of musical talent in Lewes on the first Bank Holiday weekend in May. The Ripple is a not-for-profit event that delivers a four-day cluster of live performances and party nights under a single banner.
Participants so far include The Con Club, Rocket FM, Depot Cinema, Union Music, Starfish, Si’s Sounds, The Royal Oak, Radio Lewes ,The Oyster project and The Lewes Railway Land Wildlife Trust.
It’s a ripple right now but with a fair wind, and your support, the organisers hope to expand the concept to embrace a three-day town-wide event in 2020. This would include the classical community, ancient and modern folk and choral groups of all sizes. Young musicians in particular would benefit from an event on this scale.
The Con Club is pleased to be hosting several of the Ripple events...
