Rudd retains seat with slim majority

No change in Hastings & Rye – but it was a close-run contest, with sitting MP Amber Rudd just retaining her seat as Labour’s Peter Chowney reversed his party’s 2015 decline with a vengeance. The smaller parties found themselves squeezed. Nick Terdre reports on the general election results.

The Red Shed tour with Mark Thomas

Political activist. Performer. Journalist. Self-described ‘belligerent egotist’. Mark Thomas visits St Mary in the Castle in Hastings as part of his current nationwide tour, The Red Shed: ‘a tale of strikes, fights, dinner ladies, crap beer, good beer, burger slingers, pickets, placards, commies, friendship, love, history, dreams and, above all, remembering rather than forgetting’. He will also give a talk about comedy, art, politics and misbehaving in the St Mary in the Castle café-bar, raising money for Hastings Furniture Service of which he’s the patron. HOT’s Zelly Restorick reports.
