Modulus String Quartet

Modulus String Quartet who will join forces with The New Network Singers at The Birley Centre, Eastbourne, on February 23rd 2019.


Without Borders. An evening with the Modulus String Quartet and the New Network Singers
London based Modulus String Quartet join forces with the New Network Singers to perform an array of new works composed in response to one of the biggest challenges of our time, the migrant crisis. The performance features World premieres by Eastbourne based composers, Melody Woodham, Clive Whitburn and Tim Laverack alongside music by Bafta award winning composer and Classic FM presenter, Jessica Curry.

The concept behind ‘Without Borders’ is to focus on the human cost of the migrant crisis whilst doing something practical to help. All profits from the concert will be directed to our nominated charity Migrant Help, who offer support for vulnerable migrants and victims of human trafficking and modern slavery. It is hoped that by keeping the crisis at the forefront of public consciousness it will remain high on the political agenda. As author Dina Nayeri so eloquently puts it “it is the obligation of every person in a safer room to open the door when someone in danger knocks.”

Eastbourne is entered from the north via the A27 or the A22. If approaching from the A22, at the large roundabout just north of Polegate, follow the signs to Willingdon (3rd exit) through the traffic lights at Polegate, until you reach the Willingdon roundabout.

If approaching Eastbourne from the A27, at the junction with the A2270 traffic lights, turn right (signposted Polegate and Willingdon) and follow the A2270 until you reach the Willingdon roundabout.

At the roundabout take the second exit directed to the town centre (west). Follow straight on the A2270 until you come to a roundabout with the railway station on your left and the Prezzo restaurant on your right. Then turn right into Grove Road, keeping the library on your right and go past the police station, following signs for Devonshire Park, which is adjacent the College. The College will appear on your left in Grange Road. Old Wish Road is at the far end of the pitch which is in front of the school.

From other directions, head for the seafront and turn inland opposite the Martello Tower (the Wish Tower) joining Carlisle Road. Turn right into Grange Road and immediately right into Old Wish Road.

The Birley Centre is a 10 minute walk (or 5 minute taxi ride) from the station. Follow Gildredge Road to the end, then cross over South Street and Furness Road to College Road. The Birley Centre is situated at the end of the road on the right, at the junction between College and Carlisle Roads.
