HiFest – Hastings Illustration Festival returns to Sussex Coast College Hastings this Saturday for yet another jam-packed day of illustration fun, for all ages. With last year’s event labeled “a triumph” by special guest Quentin Blake, HiFest 2015 is set to be an even bigger and better celebration of all things illustration!

Over 50 stalls will offer a massive array of prints, books, t-shirts and trinkets – perfect gifts for the holiday season, as well as a full programme of exclusive talks, workshops, screenings, competitions and over 100 guests from the world of illustration. The illustration on the left shows only a few of the amazing array of guests at the event. HiFest really puts Hastings on the map as a centre of graphic excellence.

HiFest is also hosting a number of special additional events at local venues including The Printworks, Kino-Teatr and The Beacon, as well as raising money for St Michael’s Hospice and Hastings Lifeboat. Check out the HOT event calendar for details of the fringe activities happening on Saturday and Sunday.

HiFest: Saturday 5 December 11am–6pm
Sussex Coast College, Station Plaza, Hastings
