Arches Printmaking Studio CIC

Anniversary: a year on down The Arches 

An article to celebrate the brainchild of Esther Johnson, who responded to a gap in the market by creating an independent, fully equipped, printmaking studio – the first of its kind in Hastings. A year on, just as promised, The Arches Printmaking Studio CIC (Community Interest Company) has become a valuable resource for local artists and the whole community, writes HOT’s Siobhan O’Hanlon

Love Architecture – Love Hastings!

As part of Love Architecture Week, the Jerwood Gallery are running an architecture ‘Grand Tour’ of Hastings and St Leonards on Saturday 29 June. This comes just when Jerwood Gallery has received a 2013 National Award by the Royal Institute of British Architects and  the whole town, Hastings, became one of the three towns shortlisted for the ‘Great Town’ section of the Academy of Urbanism 2014 Urbanism awards, putting it on par with Buxton and Cork. Time to open our eyes to the architectural heritage of Hastings, writes HOT’s Chris Cormack.

Pelham Place roundabout

Getting excited about a roundabout…

Pelham Roundabout is on the seafront in Hastings, more or less on the border between Hastings Old Town and what is referred to as the New Town – basically the shopping centre, with a sterile mall and some struggling High Street chains.  It is edged on one side by a car park on the front, on another by an Italian restaurant and on the third by a branch of Iceland and an office block called Aquila House – Aquila being pronounced by the locals to rhyme with Godzilla, writes Antony Mair.
