4.00 Comedy Hour
Originating from Brighton, England, inspired by New Orleans, Louisiana, the NEON SAINTS Brass Band are a 10-strong carnival, popping up at street parties, festivals stages and Youtube channels worldwide.
Combining soul, hip-hop brass and a willingness to fit too many musicians on too small of a stage, with the balls to gig anywhere (Brighton seafront, your local, a festival they weren't invited to...) you literally can't miss them - It's a brass epidemic and the only cure is more cowbell.
Neon Saints Brass Band will also play from 10:45 just before the show begins on Saturday outside the venue.
1.00 - Supreme Master Ching Hai International Association - The Key to the Highest Form of Martial Arts
As members of the Supreme Master Ching Hai International Association who adhere to the compassionate Vegan lifestyle and the practice of Quan Yin method of Meditation with a Living & Fully Enlightened Master, we experience the benefits of how our lives have improved due to more Peace, Love and Wisdom that we develop inside. Out of unconditional love, we would like to introduce everyone to this path through various different ways.
In this modern society, many see Martial arts as something for violence, physical strength or external power only, and have long forgotten its original intent, that is for inner strength and spiritual development. By practising Martial arts as spiritual practitioner, one can realize the balance of having both physical and spiritual health.
The two forms of Martial Arts we will demonstrate are Kung Fu and Tai Chi. While we demonstrate the external side of the Martial arts which benefits us physically, we would like to remind everyone that a greater, softer power, which is the power of love and peace, may also come from it. This is where the key lies. Through meditation we can have greater access to it for long lasting happiness and enlightenment. Ultimately Enlightenment through Meditation is the highest form of Martial arts.
Industrial hemp is a non-psychoactive plant, grown in 31 other countries, but prohibited in the United States. 'Bringing It Home' explores the question of why a crop with so many widespread benefits cannot be grown in America through animation, archival images and interviews with hemp business leaders and entrepreneurs in England, Spain, Washington, D.C., California and North Carolina. The documentary weaves a touching narrative extolling the many benefits of industrial hemp for the environment and human health, while illuminating the obstacles to what could be a thriving industry for U.S. farmers to tap into.
