Morag Myerscough’s ‘Belonging’

Stade Saturdays continue into autumn

We’re so lucky in this town with so many great free events on offer, including Hastings Borough Council’s Stade Saturday events, which continue through till October. 

The first weekend in September features Incubate Showcase night, with the best of young local musical talent to launch Coastal Currents 2018. Morag Myerscough’s latest work, “Belonging” can be seen from 2 – 11 September; a bright bold bandstand that will be on the Stade for a variety of community concerts and events.

On 8 September, the Ore Synthesizer club brings their timely geek masterpiece, “The Story of Vasili Alexandrovich Archipov” to the Stade with an irresistible mix of synth grooves and sampled cinema, part of the Coastal Currents Festival.

The Seafood and Wine Festival returns from Friday (evening) 14 September for a Super Ska night with the Two Tones  and all day Saturday 15 September 11am – 7.30pm and Sunday 16 September 11am-6 pm with a Jazz breakfast featuring Lianne Carroll at 9am on Sunday 16 September.

You can buy a wrist band for Saturday AND Sunday for £2, or £3 on the door; a wristband includes entry to The Super Ska night and the Jazz breakfast is ticketed separately. All tickets and wristbands can be purchased from the Tourist Information Centre on Hastings seafront.



Another Coasters circus offering on Saturday 22 September, with Ramshacklicious presenting ‘The Band at the End of the World’. Hilarious steampunk circus with anarchic music and comedy: there are two performances at 4.30pm and 7.30pm.

An evening of groove melody and soul with internationally known kora player and singer, Diabel Cissokho will be on Saturday 29 September as part of AfriKaBa Festival and African Night Fever. Life affirming, dynamic and irresistible.

The second weekend in October (6/7) will have an incredible range of classic cars on the Stade, to mark the start of Hastings Week. A further display of classic motorbikes will be on display on Saturday 13 October, followed by the festivities of Hastings bonfire night all evening, which finishes the Stade Saturdays programme with a festive bang (or two)!

“This fantastic programme of free family events offers so much for our community,” says deputy leader, Kim Forward, lead councillor for regeneration and culture said. “From showcasing young local talent to our famous bonfire night there is plenty to keep autumn Saturdays something to look forward to.”

    Great news indeed but why is there so little publicity from the council about the Stade offer? Do we no longer have a marketing or PR person at HBC?
