Benji Kirkpatrick & The Excess
Upbeat bouzouki-infused roots music for today.
Benji Kirkpatrick & The Excess head off on their debut album release tour this September.
After being at the heart of big band folksters, Bellowhead, Benji enlists fellow ex-Header Pete Flood on drums with Pete Thomas (Megan Henwood and Jackie Oates) on bass to stir up raucous riffs and potent songs. With Benji leading on bouzoukis – electric and acoustic – and guitar, the band stoke up rhythm’s, riffs and uproarious, soaring melodies; sometimes cacophonous, sometimes stark and raw, sometimes sensitive, always powerful.
Whilst being at the heart of various successful bands, big band folk trailblazers Bellowhead, power folk trio Faustus, and the Seth Lakeman band, Benji was making plans and writing material for his own project, which now takes form. Opting for the classic power trio line up, Benji’s writing is brought to life with this fresh, vibrant sound and is propelled in an exciting new direction.

The Joy of Natural Navigation – Clues and Signs in Sussex & the South Downs with Tristan Gooley
Join Sussex based author Tristan Gooley for an evening of natural navigation as he describes how he learnt to find his way using the sun, moon, stars, weather, plants, animals and buildings. Gooley has used the ancient techniques of natural navigation in the desert, on ice, in the jungle, on mountains, on oceans, in cities and in the English countryside and he explains how natural navigation can enrich all journeys, large and small.
Everyone who comes will learn the basic principles of how to make a map and compass from nature, including essential gems like how to make a map out of a rainbow and how to find a pub using a butterfly. Tristan passionately believes that natural navigation is not just a practical skill, but also the key to a much deeper and richer understanding of our environment. Be warned, it is slightly addictive.
This beautifully illustrated talk will include lots of clues from Sussex and the South Downs.
Tristan set up his natural navigation school in 2008 and is the author of the award-winning and bestselling books, The Natural Navigator (2010), The Walker’s Guide to Outdoor Clues & Signs (2014), How to Read Water(2016) and Wild Signs and Star Paths (2018), some of the world’s only books covering natural navigation.
