Cartoon Festival huge success

The first Hastings 1066 and Country Cartoon Festival was a resounding success. Main organisers Erica Smith, Penny Precious and Pete Donohue all gave of their time, energy and talents for free – as so many people in this town do – curating workshops, exhibitions and an inspired Really BIG Cartoon Day, bringing in cartoonists from around Hastings, other parts of the UK and France.

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.
