Fun and funds aplenty at Beatles Day

In terms of its main objectives – providing an entertaining day out for young and old alike and raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support – the 16th Beatles Day on 12 April  was a resounding double success. Words by Nick Terdre, photos by Johnny Powell.

A splendid time was guaranteed for all

It’s only a teenager, now in its 15th year, but Beatles Day has grown into a massive event. Last Sunday saw some 70 acts and 350 performers – 95% of the bands are from Hastings – divided between the main stage and the more intimate downstairs space of the White Rock Hotel. Nick Terdre enjoyed the show.
