Join musical duo Milton Hide for an evening of original song with help from the children of Grovelands School.

Milton Hide, Jim Tipler and Jo Church from Wilmington, weave eloquent, well-crafted story-based songs. Jim’s guitar and Jo’s clarinet blend perfectly with the duo’s pure vocal harmonies. Their music has been described by critics as “reminiscent of the Moody Blues” (Living Tradition), “a touch of Fleetwood Mac” and “vintage Steeleye” (Spiral Earth).

During 2024 Milton Hide are organising ‘Your Stories In Song’ events across the Wealden area for people to share their stories, be they personal recollections, tales of local people, family history or legends associated with places. In true folk tradition, Milton Hide are writing and performing songs inspired by the stories gathered and invite audiences to participate.

At Grovelands School the duo will be working with pupils during the afternoon to write a song which they will perform together during the evening’s entertainment.


Other info

Arlington Pop-Up Museum and the Hailsham Historical Society [TBC] will have an exhibition of local history which you can browse during the evening. If you have a story to share, you can either send it in advance (fill in the form on yourstoriesinsong.co.uk), complete a paper form on the night or speak to the duo in person.

All stories will go into the ‘Your Stories In Song’ online archive accessible to all as inspiration for songs, creative writing or visual art. This project is funded by the Lottery Community Fund.​
