Hastings has plenty of events going on this year. There is something for everyone to go to or take part in. Here is our list of some of the things that Hastings has to offer us for 2015.
The Fat Tuesday Festival
Hastings Fat Tuesday Festival is a fantastic event for music lovers with a five day music festival raising money for local charities especially as in 2014 Hastings was tipped to be the place with the highest level of musical ability.
Fat Tuesday’s started in 2010 with the idea to create the largest Mardi Gras celebration in the UK. The festival proved to be really popular with the local people and music loving tourists from out of the area.
Jack In The Green
Jack in the Green returns to Hastings again this year on May Day Bank Holiday weekend.
Jack in the Green will be leading an annual procession of Mad Jack’s Morris Dancers through the streets of Hastings Old Town, starting from the Fisherman’s Museum and ending at Hastings Castle where Jack is slain to release the spirit of summer.
Every year on the May Day Bank Holiday, 41,000 bikers and 90,000 people visit Hastings.
This is when we see Hastings at its best, with the South East’s biggest and best free motorcycle event, fantastic entertainment, top exhibitors and a great day by the seaside, checking out all the fantastic bikes that have travelled to Hastings and are parked up along the promenade.
Hastings Folk Festival
The Folk Festival will be following this year’s Jack in the Green celebrations. This again is an event for music lovers of the town.
Working with local venues, promotors and folk musicians will be pulling together a programme of events providing entertainment such as concerts, music, gigs in pubs and lots more.
Old Town Carnival Week
Hastings famous Old Town Carnival Week will be returning. With events running all week leading up to the annual carnival and firework display.
Every year this proves a popular event for families with lots going on throughout the week for everyone to take part in.
Once again the Stade will be holding the Seafood and Wine Festival. This event is very popular for the locals in to indulge in some delicious Seafood and luscious wines.
With live music and entertainment this is a fantastic event for Hastings which was proved when we won a tourism South East award in the category ‘Flavour of The South East’
