Sun 15 Jan is Martin Luther King Jr Day

Ever since Claudine Eccleston moved to Hastings about four years ago, she has hosted a house party to celebrate Martin Luther King Junior’s birthday on 15 January (MLK Day). Each year the party has got bigger and louder and more fun. This year, due to popular demand, the party is going public and will be hosted by the newly re-launched Palace venue on Hastings seafront. HOT’s Erica Smith catches up with Claudine for a bit of history and the sweet and low-down on this Sunday’s party with purpose.

Local independent bookshop needs support

Independent book shops are gems, standing out from – and up against – competition from the book selling chain stores. Tim Barton is a committed book lover and book seller, supporting local writers, performers and artists. In need of refurbishment and expansion into new areas – like a cafe for visitors – Tim is keen to raise some financial support to manifest the vision he has for Bookbuster. HOT’s Zelly Restorick helps spread the word.
