Hastings Literary Festival

Sam Davey could have come out of the womb with a book in her hand.  From there it was hardly a stretch to bcoming a writer herself and then to co-founding the first Hastings Literary Festival. When HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths talked to her about this new addition to the Hastings annual calendar of festivals and events, she explains: “I was raised on books. I could read before I could walk”.

Zoom into Coastal Currents

Zoom Arts is proud to announce an exhibition as part of Coastal Currents to be held at Zoom Arts Gallery, Warrior Square Station, St Leonards on Sea. This should prove to be an exciting and eclectic mix of work by Zoom members, unthemed, so plenty of variety.

Point Of Decay

Coastal Currents goes independent

Coastal Currents Arts Festival was initiated 16 years ago by Hastings Borough Council and run by them for many years. For the last 9 years, the council has commissioned independent producers to deliver the festival and from 2017, the event will become fully independent.
