Bloomsday 1066

Hastings is getting ready to celebrate Bloomsday in one of the most appropriate places possible for an important modernist text:  Hastings Library or the Brassey Institute at Claremont in the town centre. Lucy Brennan writes.

125 not out

Hastings Museum and Art Gallery’s 125th birthday celebrations were a great success on Wednesday 16 August. It marked 125 years to the day that Hastings’ first public museum opened, on 16 August 1892, with a re-creation of the original opening ceremony at 3.30pm, the exact time the museum was first opened.

Delay to reopening of Hastings Library

Hastings Library will reopen later than expected – to give contractors more time to protect the fabric of the historic building. The library, in Claremont, has been closed since February last year for a complete revamp. The finished building will also house the children’s library which is currently based in Robertson Passage.
