A chance to cherish Hastings’ heritage

Look around you! Too much of historic Hastings and St Leonards has been demolished or abused, or is under threat, but despite regrets some people really like what’s left in the borough, finds Bernard McGinley. Exceptional places are visitable thanks to the Love Architecture Festival and Heritage Open Days.

The Flaming Galahs at the Beacon, 24 August

Wikipedia tells us that ‘galah’ is another name for the rose-breasted cockatoo; Urban Dictionary explains that a ‘flaming galah is a person who makes a fool of themselves, but isn’t afraid to laugh at themselves when everyone else starts laughing at them.’ In Hastings, The Flaming Galahs are an all-female musical trio consisting of Krysia Mansfield on vocals, Lucy Mulgan on double bass and vocals, and Lesley Anne Sammons on piano and vocals. HOT reporter Cathy Simpson spent an evening at the Beacon being enthralled and entertained!
