Solar Powered Jazz with Sounds Easy to celebrate Earth Hour

WWFs Earth Hour is a simple idea that started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million people and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights off for one hour to take a stand against climate change. Only a year later it had quickly turned into a global phenomenon, with more than 50 million people participating in 35 countries. Hundreds of millions of people turning off their lights for one hour, on the same night, all across the planet. Its about appreciating the brilliant world we all share — and how we need to protect it. Not just for an hour a year, but every day.

The Keystone has been demonstrating its support for Earth Hour since 2010 and for 2012 has teamed up with Transition Guildford to offer a solar powered candle lit jazz evening! Transition Guildford have sourced a mobile solar powered generator which will be soaking up the rays at the pub during the day and storing the suns energy ready for the gig in the evening.

Switch off your lights at home and join us for the evening to show your support.

One hour. One world. Our Future.

OLIVIA What's a drunken man like, fool?
CLOWN Like a drowned man, a fool, and a madman: one draught above heat makes him a fool, the second mads him, and a third drowns him. (Twelfth Night)

From ale to wine, malmsey to mead, references to drinking and the effects of drunkeness are littered throughout Shakespeare's plays, whether directly relating to a drinking event or being used as metaphor to embelish a subject. Join us as we take a fun and fascinating look at the correlation between Shakespeare and the art of drinking.

Dr Sketchy London returns to The Keystone for a 2nd night

At Dr. Sketchy we ask a simple question. Why can't life drawing be sexy? So we've scoured this great land to find beautiful burlesque performers, bizarre circus acts and rippling hunks. Then we let them loose on stage to release the artist in you! In between each round of sketching our larger-than-life models you get a chance to grab a drink, get comfortable and take in some of the finest burlesque, comedy and quirky cabaret performances on offer. It's what art classes would be if the class was unleashed in the Moulin Rouge with no teacher, no homework and no school tomorrow!
