Weird Noise in High Street

Road closure at top of School Hill, presumably due to gas leak or something. But I can hear the most daft noise up on the High Street, but cannot see what machine is causing it. Does anyone know?

Isn't it the "Tom Paine festival" today, high street closed from 12 until 7.30pm ???

Did anyone actually see this 'festival' in action? All I could see was some speakers erected by the castle gate. It seemed to me that they closed the high street all day for nothing at all.

I had intended to spy on the shoe nail dance thing, but forgot it was on.

I went to it and thought it was fantastic.
Lewes High street full of energy and rebellion, just great, well done to all involved. The bonfire societies should do that sort of stuff on Bonfire night.

Couldn't they have done it somewhere in a park, perhaps in the field behind Tesco? How self-important and selfish to close the high street.

Agree with JSP, thought it was excellent, and kids really enjoyed watching it. No idea how they managed to choreograph so many dancers of all ages and abilities, but really pulled it off. For a few minutes I felt like a teenager again, wanting to storm the barricades to fight injustice, which I certainly didn't expect. This is the kind of thing that makes Lewes so much fun to live in. Well done whoever organised it, and whoever gave the permissions for it to go ahead, knowing it might annoy the usual suspects!

Wasn't the purpose of the dance to "stomp" TP into the ground? Was this an anti-TP dance in the middle of the pro-TP events?

Susannah Walts organised it and Ginny Farman choreographed it. It was a paddock production thing (the Finnish prisoner). Did enjoy it. Strange but enlightening.

It was inspired by the person who wanted to stamp TP into the ground by putting TP on the heads of his shoe nails. This dance was about the right to protest, hence the dual TP interpretation.

But Mystic Mog, who was THAT person?

The event is over now and the posters are flapping about in the breeze. Why can't people leave things as they found them?

This is a sad and infuriating subject, as so much misinformation is pushed, and the far-right lap it up as their truth. I was... more
