On December 5 I will be reading from my book The Light Keeper, telling the real-life stories behind it and playing songs inspired by it with a band called The Light Keepers, at the Towner Gallery.


All fellow DC members are, of course, warmly invited. The performance will be in the cinema, where we have the chance to project images on the large screen. I would love to collaborate with artists on this aspect of the show, and would therefore like to put an open call out to anyone who has produced artwork in response to the landscape around the Belle Tout lighthouse, Beachy Head, Birling Gap and the Seven Sisters. I’m looking for images or short films in a suitable format and definition to be able to be projected on the large screen. They will be credited on screen at the time, I will talk about the images directly during the show and they will be up for a suitable length of time for people to take them in. If people are interested I will also promote the images online after the performance with links to artist pages. Again, if artists are interested there will be an opportunity to introduce their work in the Q&A session in the second half. Email me on colemoreton@gmail.com to express your interest and let me know what artwork you have.

The Light Keeper is a story of love, hope, faith, loss and longing, set on the high cliffs and focused on the lighthouse. You can hear readings from the book and the songs by searching for The Light Keeper on Apple Play, Spotify or other streaming services. More details at www.thelightkeeper.org. Thanks!
