Hastings Fat Tuesday voted Event of the Year

Hastings Fat Tuesday Music Festival has won Event of the Year 2018 at the Celebration of Sussex Life Awards. The fastest growing festival in the South-East, and the UK’s largest Mardi Gras celebration, Hastings Fat Tuesday marks its 10th anniversary from 1-5  March 2019, with five days packed with live music and carnival celebrations. Borrowing heavily from the New Orleans take on Mardi Gras (“Fat Tuesday” is English for Mardi Gras), the festival is also hailed as Hastings’ answer to SXSW in Texas.

Let your hair down at the Fat Tuesday festival

The Fat Tuesday festival is upon us, a chance to let your hair down before submitting to the deprivations of Lent, if you’re that way inclined. Alternatively simply a chance to let your hair down. The organisers have largely stuck to last year’s tried and tested formula, with daytime events at the weekend complementing the evening and late-night happenings on the other nights. Nick Terdre takes a leaf through the programme.

Fat Tuesday extravaganza kicks off Friday

Fat Tuesday – Hastings’ version of Mardi Gras or carnival, the days when everyone lets their hair down before putting on a hair shirt for Lent (or maybe in Hastings they don’t) – has taken a quantum leap forward this year to become one of the town’s leading festivals. As the clock ticks down to the opening event on Friday, Nick Terdre takes a look at the cornucopia of musical entertainment on offer.
