Join me within the atmospheric grounds of Newhaven Fort for a participatory live art piece centered around omens and superstition from the past to the present day.

Taking the form of a walking tour we'll visit a series of site specific art pieces created to open discussion on the nature of luck, all inspired by the charms and rituals people often protect themselves - and loved ones - with during uncertain times, especially soldiers in WW1.


Adults, accompanied children and well behaved dogs welcome.

Most of the Fort is accessible, however, some of the tunnels and ramparts are not accessible due to the nature of the architecture and building structure. Please see the Newhaven Fort website for further details.
