Battle of Hastings Jill Tattersall

Reading The Heavens

Reading The Heavens, The Night Sky October 1066 is Jill Tattersall’s exhibition of her paintings of night skies at the Memorial Halls in Battle, showing until 18 October. HOT’s Chandra Masoliver went to see it and was impressed by the beauty of the paintings; the magical blues, black, silver, gold and white she uses – and the precision of the image of the night sky as it was on the eve of the battle of Hastings.

Free cartoon workshops for all

Hastings Cartoon Festival opened with a big cartoon BANG! last Thursday at Hastings Museum. The extensive Martin Honeysett retrospective is the first temporary exhibition in the main gallery for over 20 years, and is supported by an excellent collection of cartoons about the Battle of Hastings by Honeysett’s contemporaries from the Professional Cartoonists’ Organisation in the upstairs gallery. The shows deserve a couple of hours of your time, and will guarantee to put a smile on your face on the dullest of autumnal or wintery days.
