In better days: Amber Rudd campaigning in Hastings in 2015.

Sudden halt to Rudd’s meteoric rise

Local MP Amber Rudd’s resignation as Home Secretary brings her hitherto meteoric rise to the top of British politics to a sudden halt. While opposition parties in Hastings welcome the widespread condemnation of the ‘hostile environment’ policy for immigrants which Ms Rudd was in charge of implementing, they have different takes on its wider significance and her political future.

Meet Rachel Glittenberg, artist

Rachel Glittenberg is one of the 24 artists with work on show at Hastings Arts Forum from today (Wednesday 2 May) through to Sunday 13 May. The Festival 15 show has been curated to celebrate 15 years of Hastings Arts Forum and contains work from established Hastings artists like Angie Braven and Gus Cummins through to artists like Colden Drystone who is on the first rung of his art career. Glittenberg is somewhere between those two poles. Erica Smith talks to the artist about her work.

Walking and cycling funding cut draws protest

Hastings Greenway Group (HGG) has delivered a strong protest against East Sussex County Council’s decision to halve the budget for a package of walking and cycling routes in order to provide more money for road building, the latest in a series of walking and cycling commitments which have failed to materialise.

Alexandra Drawbridge Gagged at Project 78

Sometimes one enters an art gallery and is intrigued, surprised, yet finds the work somewhat unsettling. Unsettled is what HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths felt when she went into Project 78 to see Alexandra Drawbridge‘s show, Gagged. She wasn’t thinking of reviewing the exhibition but as the work slowly filtered through, she wondered what it was about and there were questions she wanted to ask.
