Hastings Fat Tuesday Music Festival has won Event of the Year 2018 at the Celebration of Sussex Life Awards. The fastest growing festival in the South-East, and the UK’s largest Mardi Gras celebration, Hastings Fat Tuesday marks its 10th anniversary from 1-5  March 2019, with five days packed with live music and carnival celebrations.
