Strike a Light – New look website!

006-Tea Dance WRVSWe’ve been having a bit of a spring clean here at Strike a Light, and have changed the look and feel of our website.
It’s our first proper update since 2010! We think it’s cleaner and more fresh now. You’ll be able to find more functions, easier accessibility and a more obvious structure to it. We’re just rolling it out now, so bear with us whilst we check for glitches and what not, but hopefully they will be few and far between.
Social media is more obvious as it now sits on each page and you can catch up with our Twitter feed more easily. You can also see which themes are most popular on the Strike a Light site through our tag cloud. There are more photos, resources and text to look through too.
Get in touch if you have any comments or suggestions, we’re happy to keep on tweaking. And most importantly, we hope you like it!

Ale and Hearty final event – 2014

Strike a Light hosted a project book launch recently in Lewes (January 2014).

This involved a drop-in crafts workshop to make slumber pillows using heritage local hops, showcasing our Ale and Hearty project exhibition, a screening of our Ale Tales film, wild food cafe, and free beer tasting.

The hit of the evening was a round table discussion about brewing with Miles Jenner, Master Brewer from Harveys Brewery, David Muggleton – Editor of The Sussex DrinkerGodfrey Broster the brewing vicar, and John Copper of the singing Copper Family.

We had a packed house and a great time, in part due to the generous beer provisions donated by Harveys of Lewes!

Ale and Hearty was an HLF funded social history project about brewing and related agriculture and industry around Lewes.

This project is now finished – 2014


Ale and Hearty launch event – Friday 8th March 6-9pm Free

Friday 8th March: Ale and Hearty project launch

An event tailor-made for nostalgic Lewesians, as the Ale and Hearty project launch heralds the excuse (as if any were needed) for a year-long celebration of the town’s renowned brewing heritage. With all sorts of activities being planned to commemorate what was formerly a burgeoning industry (the town supported no fewer than nine working breweries) it looks like 2013 may be a fine vintage for ale drinkers, artists and social historians alike.

All welcome but please email aleandheartylewes@gmail.com to be added to the guest list.

At the Linklater Pavilion, from 6-9pm on Friday March 8th.
