Hastings women march in London – and on home ground

HOT’s Erica Smith was one of a group of 15 women who were nominated by other women in Hastings to work together and produce a banner commemorating the centenary of (some) women being given the right to vote. Last Sunday they took their banner to be part of the Processions march in London. If you missed out on that amazing event, there’s a second chance to see the banner and join in the Hastings Women’s March on Saturday 23 June. Read Erica’s report about the marches here.

Hastings Fringe Festival 2018 launch

The original idea for the festival, catalysed by artistic director and writer, Heather Alexander, was to create a platform to showcase new and original works by local talent – and it took place at The Stables in 2015. This year’s festival, bigger and bolder than previous years, takes place through June and July at various venues in Hastings and St Leonards on Sea with a wide spectrum of performers. The Hastings Film Fringe takes place from 27 – 29 July at the Electric Palace Cinema. There is so much to see and do! Enjoy!
