Presented by Kent Creative

Kent Creative welcome you to join us for an unforgettable evening of early cinema with internationally acclaimed silent film pianist Stephen Horne.

Prepare to be transported back to an era when film soundtracks were orchestrated in front of spectators by live musicians.

The evening will showcase classic short films with live piano accompaniment by Stephen Horne, one of the leading silent film accompanists, resident pianist for the BFI and regular at Cannes Film Festival. Although principally a pianist, he often incorporates other instruments into his performances, sometimes simultaneously.

The programme includes: The High Sign (Buster Keaton), Le rêve des Marmitons (Segundo De Chomon), Now you tell One (Charley Bowers), L’écrin du Radjah (Gaston Velle) and The Immigrant (Charlie Chaplin).

ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
