Save The Tub!

Local venue under threat but you can help. The venue, known variously as The Union Bar, The Tub or The Tubman to its many loyal users has to find approximately £5,000 to improve fire safety within the pub, or it will have to close down by the end of February. Andy Gunton writes.

The Lantern Society

Trevor Moss & Hannah-Lou’s Lantern Society reads the hand stitched bunting, dappled in flickering candlelight and red glow. A thriving hubbub and forum, cauldron and big top. A throng of performers and listeners alike gathered from all over town and beyond jostle and meet. There’s no list for players to sign up, it’s not even first come first served, for at the Lantern Society fortune favours the brave.

King Size Slim storms the Stade

“King Size Slim – you must see him”, said a friend to me. “Great voice and a good guy.” High praise from this particular friend. So I wandered down to the Stade when he was performing earlier in the summer in front of the deck chairs – he was just as she said – and now he’s returning to play at The Big Sleep Hastings 2016, helping people “find their way out of the storm”. Zelly Restorick writes.
