Ale and Hearty is a Heritage Lottery Funded Lewes based project, looking at the heritage of brewing in the town.
We held an ale and brewing focussed song workshop on Saturday 8th June at The Lewes Arms, ably facilitated by songstrels Emily and the Hares to a packed room of 45 singers.
The day long workshop included learning a multitude of ale themed songs, and some readings about the subject from Temperance to drunkeness. All in all a very interesting and enjoyable day!
The song below was one of a selection we learned whilst accompanied with good ale from the bar below us.
DRINK OLD ENGLAND DRY
Now come, me brave boys, as I’ve told you before
Come drink, me brave boys, and we’ll boldly call for more
For the French they’ve invited us and they say that they will try
They say that they will come and drink old England dry
Aye, dry, aye dry, me boys, aye, dry
They say they will come over and drink Old England dry.
Supposin’ we should meet with the Germans by the way
Ten thousand to one we will show them British play
With our swords and our cutlasses, we’ll fight until we die
Before that they shall come and drink old England dry
Artist, Lorenza Ippolito will be having a week of conversations at COMMUNITY ART CENTRE
31 Queens Road, BN1 3XA Brighton, United Kingdom.
From Tuesday to Friday she will be in the space with fellow conversationalist to talk about whatever takes our fancy. Serious stuff as well as light touches, deep concepts, but not purposely difficult speak, maybe even some art (if you’re lucky).
Please come and bring your own cushions if you want to be comfortable or (if you think discomfort aides good debate) come along without!
Interesting article in this quarter’s The Sussex Drinker– a Sussex CAMRA magazine, about a local Lewes Brewery – The Southdown and East Grinstead, a once powerful brewery in Sussex who then sold much of their assets to Tamplin’s brewery in the 1920s.
Thanks to David Muggleton for passing this article on to us.
