After all the excitement, joy and dismay, following the Referendum, Hastings gets back to what it does well, with the 3rd Midsummer Fish Festival starting today at The Stade, 11.00 until 20.00 hours; tomorrow until 18.00 hours. This means a free event sponsored by Hastings Fishermen's Protection Society and Hastings Borough Council with music galore, childrens' activities, cooking and fish filleting demonstrations, beer, and, of course, fish! See HBC website, and links from there, for further information about the event.
In conjunction with the Midsummer Fish Festival, the free guided Stade Walk returns, starting at the Fishermen's Museum in Rock-a-Nore Road at 11.00, and arranged by Old Hastings Preservation Society! A donation to the Museum or OHPS would be appreciated, though; for more information, see their website.
Of course, Hastings Pier cannot be ignored either! Music here too from 13.00 hours, with Helen Sharpe and the Soulshine Band, and Chill @ The Pier from 16.00 hours, with a Terrace DJ Set, and, of course the Vintage Funfare continues from 10.00. See website for more details and have fun!
