Fishy masterclasses coming early next year

For many centuries fish and fishing were the very lifeblood of Hastings. The piscatorial pioneers who brought in those doughty denizens of the deep formed a firm foundation for the town’s economy that lives on today. So it’s great that, following on from a fabulous weekend at the Hastings Herring Fair, the team from Billingsgate Seafood School are returning to deliver some workshops to show us how to make the very best of the local catch in Hastings. Toby Sargent reports.

Local businesses, like this one, got lots of support from visitors.

Happy herring days on the Stade
