From modest beginnings Hastings Fat Tuesday has now grown into a 5 day festival where we celebrate our amazing local music scene, the envy of many other towns and blow away the cobwebs of winter. This is the 5th Hastings Fat Tuesday and it keeps on getting bigger and bigger, in fact we now lay claim to be the largest authentically themed Mardi Gras in the UK.
You’ll find something for everyone over the Fat Tuesday weekend leading up the main event on Tuesday the 4th of March.
It’s time to kick those winter blues into touch. So dress up, dance out and celebrate the first big event in the Hastings Calendar – Spring is just around the corner!
Hastings Fat Tuesday has recently formed as a charity with the mission to support, encourage, nurture and promote original music in Hastings and the surrounding 1066 area. We intend to assist young and disadvantaged people to get involved with music and performance, to support performers, bands and music venues and to generally promote Hastings and St Leonards as a centre of musical excellence and a destination for music tourism.
The Stinger Magazine is our new bi-monthly publication aimed at promoting the rich musical heritage of the town and the wide spread of music throughout the 1066 area.
