Writers and scholars from across the world can now explore the importance of fairy tales in literature and culture thanks to a new project based in Sussex.

Professor Bill Gray, an English lecturer at the University of Chichester, is the brainchild behind the new Sussex Centre for Folklore, Fairy Tales and Fantasy, which launches next week.
The centre seeks to explore, discuss and celebrate the folklore, fairy tales and fantastic imagination from across the world that has led to best selling fantasy works by writers as diverse as JRR Tolkien, Terry Pratchett, JK Rowling, Philip Pullman and CS Lewis.
The launch of the centre will be marked by a lecture on (9/02/10) given by Dr Diane Purkins, of Keble College, Oxford, who has published extensively on fairies and witches. Further talks are taking place this year, information from  www.sussexfolktalecentre.org

Urban Decay Cosmetics has produced the  highly sought after ‘Alice in Wonderland Book Of Shadows’

What a dream come true! When Disney called to ask if we would design a product for the launch of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, we were like, “Um…. Yes!” The result is this truly amazing (and seriously collectible) Book of Shadows.

Open the palette to reveal a pop-up scene of Alice in the mushroom forest. Her “drink me” bottle discarded, she staggers past towering mushrooms, only to cross paths with a very peculiar, hookah-smoking caterpillar. A large mirror rests behind the scene – you feel as if you are transported into the film itself.

Hidden inside a secret drawer are 16 best-selling Eyeshadows, given topsy-turvy names like White Rabbit, Jabberwocky and Oraculum. Alongside them lie travel sizes of Eyeshadow Primer Potion and two 24/7 Eye Pencils. From smoky neutral eyes to flashes of hallucinogenic green and purple, the looks you can create are as endless as the rabbit hole itself. Anyone who loves Urban Decay, Tim Burton, Disney, or Alice in Wonderland absolutely MUST have this palette. Even the Mad Hatter would say this Book of Shadows delivers it all.

Fairy Day is a holiday sprung from the imagination of fairy artist:
Jessica Galbreth

The following text is taken from the official Fairy Day website:

There is a veil between the worlds

Years ago, what would seem like many to those of us of mortal blood, but what is really just a twitch of time to the ageless stars and eternal moons, the world of mortal and the world of fairy were separated. Mortal man had become too populous, too jaded, too fast for the easier, more genteel pace of the fairy blooded, so they chose to leave this place and create their own They live now in another level of our world where a veil of magic has been created to divide us from them and keep their lives free of our hectic, desperate struggle to progress. A level close enough for them to keep watch over us, to keep our imaginations alive with periodic night rides through the countryside, witnessed by the lucky few staring out of misty windows on a night seemingly burdened with insomnia. The worlds are so alike, so close in kind they might even be seen as parallel worlds, if not for the beings that inhabit them. Their world is the stuff of legend for our world. The winged and horned and magic creatures unlike any we know here. The beings of rock, of water, of air and fire and spirit. ~ Jacqueline Collen-Tarrolly, artist, February, 2006

The Mermaid of Zennor- a Cornish Premiere and The Sleeping Beauty (Aurora’s Wedding)

This year, Duchy Ballet presents two completely new dance choreographies based on two ancient fairy tales. One has its origins in Cornwall and the other in France but both belong in the folk memory with appeal to all generations.

Mermaid of Zennor

With an original score composed by local musician, David Frost, and choreography by Lucy Graham. The Mermaid of Zennor will be working her magic on the audience in this danced interpretation of her intriguing story. Many discoveries will be made as the Mermaid’s story unfolds both on land and beneath the sea.

The Sleeping Beauty (Aurora’s Wedding)

Duchy Ballet’s talented young dancers will dance alongside guest artists trained at the Bolshoi Ballet in this glittering production performed to Tchaikovsky’s music . Fairytale characters and fabulous jewels celebrate the wedding of Aurora and her handsome Prince after the jealous wicked fairy, Carabosse, is defeated by the ever-watchful Lilac Fairy.

First produced in 2004, ETO’s hugely successful production of the Britten/Shakespeare masterpiece returns. In a fairy-haunted wood, lovers’ knots are tangled, and strange dreams create monstrous romances.

Only in an hilarious play performed by working men are all the opera’s tensions and enchantments eased. Michael Rosewell conduct’s Britten’s eerie, highly theatrical score, with a cast led by Jonathan Peter Kenny and Andrew Slater.
