Tim, in his unholy incarnation as Timberlina, put together an eclectic mix of performers including alt-folk performers Anita Jardine from Hastings and Kim Thompsett from Rye. Both artistes gave laugh-out-loud sets and also some food for serious thought.

Tom Marshman opened the show as the monotonous Bill, the holiday rep and soon had the audience in stitches. Nathan Evans closed with a Punch and Jude show, with all of the violence, foul language and crudity of the traditional childrens’ entertainment plus a heavy dose of more sophisticated adult humour.

The packed house included a diverse mix of locals and people from further afield, all united in appreciation of a rather special evening’s entertainment. Timberlina acted as the mistress of ceremonies and also treated us to insights into her particular brand of eco-heroism. Acorn coffee anyone? She made it so you don’t have to. Absolutely disgusting. An ideal Christmas present.
