Fat Tuesday: Unplugged Saturday from 1pm to 6pm

This is the bigger news in Hastings for today, so do enter the world of non-stop live music in 16 venues for 5 hours this afternoon from 1pm to 6pm in Hastings Old Town, of course, followed by more live music this evening in many of the bars too! 

So, music on at the seafront, High Street, All Saints Street, George Street and Rock-a-Nore Road, that is, at the Stag, FILO, Porters, Jenny Lind, Dolphin Inn, Standard, Anchor, Crown, Albion, Nelson, Pumphouse, Seed, Whistle Trago, Dragon Bar, Albion Seafront, and Lathams! For details of who is playing where and when go to the website.

Of course, this precedes Fat Tuesday, when even more live music can be enjoyed, but enjoy the more gentle acoustic version today, have fun!

Fox News

No, not the dodgy American media source, but I have had feedback on twitter from Richard regarding my recent blog, who told me that: "there's quite a few like that living in the woods between Croft Rd and Bembrook allotment." 

Many thanks Richard, probably just a genetic thing, now I'm disappointed...

The Second New Seafront Kiosk

Back in September (blog) I reported that a second seafront kiosk, between the Pier and Warrior Square, was planned and 'expressions of interest' were being sought to manage it. Well, it appears to be being built now...

My original estimate may have been wrong
