‘Not 1066 and all that’ – a different approach to conventional history

In conventional history-making what seems to unite different historians is a particular subject matter, such as a period in history. The ‘Not 1066 and All That’ event on Saturday 8 October is not quite like that. Instead our emphasis is on how we have made history and ways of sharing this so that others can pursue their own interests, writes Hilda Kean, one of the organisers of this event.

Roll up for Hastings Herring Fair!

Hastings Herring Fair takes to the Stade this weekend, when the local fishing fleet will be celebrating 10 years since they were awarded MSC – Marine Stewardship Council – status for their sustainable methods of herring fishing. Councillor Dawn Poole, Hastings Borough Council’s lead member for regeneration, explains what’s on offer.

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.

Many of you will have met Talullah, the twelve-foot-high mermaid who cheerfully makes an annual appearance at Jack in the Green. Now her creators, Radiator Arts, have come indoors – the weather’s getting cold – and will be hosting a totally unique event in the Stade Hall. HOT reporter and Radiator Arts member, Cathy Simpson, hops onto a snow plough and reveals more.

Radiating style!

Hastings-based Radiator Arts is a well-loved community arts group comprised of highly creative, slightly quirky artists.  They are responsible for some of the spectacular, colourful events in the town – who can forget Dancing with Dabs at the Seafood and Wine Festival, the Umbrella Parade during Fat Tuesday week and, of course, Talullah the mermaid at Jack in the Green?  For years they have been holding workshops at community events and children’s centres – but now your kids have an opportunity to join in regularly at Radiator’s newly formed art club!
