Carnival Day! Saturday 6th August 2016

There is plenty going on, of course, so I shall mention the events that I feel are most important, and the ones I tend to support (you'll probably know which interests I tend to follow by now, if you're a regular reader!), however, the full details are at the website, and don't forget, there will be music in other pubs and bars not mentioned too, after all, this is Hastings on a Saturday! There is an Arts & Crafts Fair, together with refreshments appropriately, at St Clements Church 10am to 2pm, where friend of William Morris, Dante Gabriel Rossetti married Elizabeth Siddal in 1860 (see my blog of 7th March 2015).

From 11am to 4pm Mick Barrow is on duty in Rock-a-Nore Road talking about Fishing, Past and Present at an Open Net Shop and Display of Nets and Pots; any donations will be passed on to Prostate Cancer UK. Old Hastings Preservation Society (OHPS) have organised for their 2 regular walks on the one day, so, meeting at Hastings Fishermen's Museum at 11am for their Stade Guided Walk and at 2.30pm by the top of West Hill Lift for their Original Old Town Walk, for which donations to the Fishermens Museum and OHPS respectively would be appreciated, many thanks.

Of course, the climax of the day will be the Firework Display up at the Castle at dusk, following the Carnival Parade, which starts at Rock-a-Nore Road at 5pm and wanders around the old town for a few hours, with breaks for music at various locations; for further details of the organisation of this event, please go to the website

Enjoy Carnival Day!
