Congratulations! The Transition Town Hastings (TTH) initiative, ‘Meet You At The Mosaic’, has been selected as one of the chosen projects for the March – April 2018 Tesco Bags of Help Grant Scheme. HOT’s Zelly Restorick, keen to spread the word and gather support, asks TTH about the project.

Funicular icicles not seen in 20 years

It’s not just Network Rail who have icicles in their tunnels! Over the last few days, temperatures have remained below freezing and ironically, on the first day of its summer opening programme, which starts on 1 March, long icicles have formed inside the tunnel of Hastings’ West Hill Lift, a 126 year old funicular railway which is still in operation.

Six battle through to reach piano finals

It was cold outside but plenty of heat was being generated in the auditorium of the White Rock Theatre by the semi-finalists in the Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition. HOT correspondent Heidi de Winter watched and listened, drinking in the atmosphere and the music, as the remaining 11 contestants were whittled down to six. Photos by Bob Mazzer.

Help Hastings Old Town walk off with Ramblers’ prize. Hastings Old Town is in the running (walking?!) to win the very first Britain’s Best Walking Neighbourhood Award, launched by the Ramblers on Monday 26 February. It is one of ten areas to make it to the final public vote in the new award, which celebrates the places that put urban walkers first.

Lindisfarne

Lindisfarne come to Hastings

Songs from Lindisfarne’s repertoire still echo for many of us. ‘The Fog on the Tyne’. ‘Run For Home’. ‘Meet Me On The Corner’. Classics from a bygone era that still resonate today. The auditorium at St Mary in the Castle is already sold-out, but you can still buy balcony seats and watch and listen to these excellent musicians who emerged from Tyneside in the 1970s and are clearly still going strong with a lot of fans keen to see them on their latest tour. Guaranteed you’ll be toe tapping, humming or singing along with gusto!
