Hastings Seafood and Wine Festival

The ever popular Hastings Seafood and Wine Festival takes place next weekend, 19th/20th September, and as usual music will feature throughout the event.

This year there is also an extra music event on the preceding Friday, 18th September.

All the musical entertainment has been arranged by Mike Raxworthy, and he felt that as the event marquee was already in place, why not make full use of it and put on an ‘extra’ gig, so he has.

The Friday evening event is being called “Super Ska Night” and features The Two Tones, plus Dub and Tuff. Tickets for this special gig are £7.50 in advance, from the Tourist Information Centre, and £10 on the door. The gig runs from 7.30 – 11pm.

Here is the line up for the main Festival itself:

SATURDAY 19th SEPT
12.00 – 1pm: Turpin & Walker
1.30 – 2.30: The A-Team
3.00 – 4.00: Nigel Bagge Band
4.30 – 5.30: The Chantelle Duncan Band
6.00 – 7.00: The Meow Meows

SUNDAY 20th SEPT
10.00 – 12.00: Liane Carroll’s Jazz Breakfast
(Tickets £15 from the Tourist Information Centre, or on the door – This is nearly sold out!)

1.15 – 2.15: The Southern Blues Kings
2.45 – 3.45: Lipstick and Beetnicks
4.15 – 5.30: The Boss (Bruce Springsteen tribute act)
6.00 – 7.30: Stax of Motown

Cost: Only £1 for an arm band in advance from the Tourist Information Centre, or
£2 on the door gets you into the music marquee all Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

As in previous years, all music events will take place in the special Entertainment Marquee, near the Lifeboat Station on the Stade Open Space.

Update: Support act for the Super Ska Night, on Friday 18th Sept, has been announced as ‘Dub and Tuff’
