"Having heard that the wood at Cow Gap is to be burnt, I feel it is a wasted opportunity to not build something with it first, for example 'the wicker man'.
I feel this could be a great community project for locals and could increase the artistic profile of Eastbourne, if promoted correctly. "
They could always do it any way and stick a couple of the local councillors in there while they are at it.

The house band were from Brighton but the performers all looked like people from the weirder side of Manhattan. There were a couple of ladies who did various fan dances, a (not very good) juggler, an escapologist, a rope act and a sex monkey. The rope act were probably the best part of the show. It was a woman and two men with lots of climbing ropes, hanging from ropes and spinning round on ropes. The whole show had a sort of vaudeville feel with a slight industrial/alternative undercurrent. Most of the audience were given kazoos when the went in and proceeded to join in with most of the tunes. A couple of ladies even won sets of "Paisties" in a sex quiz.
The person I went with thought it was a bit of a shambles but I thought that was all part of its charm/act. The big infaltable cow is probably not the best place to see something like that as the Spiegeltent (or a dingy NY night club) would have had more atmosphere. Not bad though.
