Hastings Fringe Festival 2018 launch

The original idea for the festival, catalysed by artistic director and writer, Heather Alexander, was to create a platform to showcase new and original works by local talent – and it took place at The Stables in 2015. This year’s festival, bigger and bolder than previous years, takes place through June and July at various venues in Hastings and St Leonards on Sea with a wide spectrum of performers. The Hastings Film Fringe takes place from 27 – 29 July at the Electric Palace Cinema. There is so much to see and do! Enjoy!

Fat Tuesday takes centre stage

The Fat Tuesday festival is upon us! A long weekend of music and fun running from Friday 24 to Tuesday 28 February. Full details are available on the Fat Tuesday website, from which Nick Terdre has culled the following essential details. Photos (mostly) from Fat Tuesday.

It's that time of year again!

Let your hair down at the Fat Tuesday festival

The Fat Tuesday festival is upon us, a chance to let your hair down before submitting to the deprivations of Lent, if you’re that way inclined. Alternatively simply a chance to let your hair down. The organisers have largely stuck to last year’s tried and tested formula, with daytime events at the weekend complementing the evening and late-night happenings on the other nights. Nick Terdre takes a leaf through the programme.

It’s Beatles Day, one of the musical highlights of the year in Hastings, this Sunday at the White Rock Theatre. At this musical extravaganza which lasts from midday until 10.30pm, you can catch 93 different acts featuring more than 500 musicians. Nick Terdre can’t wait.

Fat Tuesday: last two days

Following a busy weekend schedule in which the sun shone on the Umbrella Parade, many enjoyed the Preservation Sunday music and beer festival at St Mary in the Castle, not to mention the Off Axis sets played by up-and-coming bands at the Carlisle, while yet others enjoyed the way-out sounds and performances of Sonic Sunday in St Leonards, culminating in something really different at a secret location skilfully disguised beneath a garage, Fat Tuesday moves into its final two days. Here be the word from the website.
