Act like an aristocrat…

… and pay like a pauper.  Next Saturday make St Mary in the Castle your drawing room for the evening to listen to the most exquisite chamber music played by the best local talent that ‘musically sophisticated’ Hastings has to offer… all at the pauperly price of £10/£7 concessions, writes HOT’s Chris Cormack.
