Dictionary Pudding + Brighton Alternative Jazz Festival present the triumphant second coming of the Arkestra - on Easter Weekend, no less!

Sun Ra Arkestra


Following 2017's earth-shattering three-night, sold out, residency in Lewes, the Arkestra are popping back in to furnish us with another incredible evening.

93 years old, Marshall Allen, as Musical Director of the Arkestra, is now in his 59th year of continuous activity within the Arkestra. Marshall has been in the Sun Ra Arkestra 21 years longer than Sun Ra himself - an incredible achievement.
