Utter Nonsense in Hastings

You might see this title and think “Yes, and…?” or even “Is that an instruction?” Hastings, after all, is no stranger to utter nonsense.

It’s a few days after the event, but the joys of the Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition are still vivid in my memory of a wonderful evening last Saturday.  Hastings is not great when it comes to classical music – events are comparatively few and far between – but this was well worth the wait.  A packed house at the White Rock Theatre listened spellbound to three immensely talented finalists, each accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, writes Antony Mair

Domestic Disturbance evening raises funds on International Women’s Day

A fantastic £547 was raised by the School Creative Centre and riart Grrrls in aid of Refuge on International Women’s Day (IWD) on 8 March. Domestic Disturbance, which involved collaborations from over 50 women, was a riartous evening of performance, live art, knitting, exhibitions and scrumptious food. Xaverine Bates reports back on the outrageously quirky celebrations.

St Leonards Writers at the Jerwood

St Leonards Writers and The Jerwood Gallery have collaborated to create an exciting community project, writes HOT reporter Joe Fearn. Each writer has written a story inspired by a particular painting, some from the gallery’s private collection, others from the current exhibition. A promenade performance on Tuesday 2 April will lead the audience through the gallery with the writers.

A huge thanks to everyone who came along to the HOT Benefit music night on Sunday March 10 at the East Hastings Sea Angling Association. Organised by HOT’s indomitable Sean O’Shea, the highlight of the evening was an astonishing and virtuosic performance from The Warrior Squares, writes HOT’s Richard Hull.
