Despite getting off to a soggy start, the sun was soon shining on Hastings Pier’s 1960’s-themed May Day event.
Classics On The Pier saw a fleet of vintage scooters and bikes line the decking, with a series of live bands providing a suitably swinging soundtrack of classic hits from the era.
Hastings Pier CEO Jo Stewart said: “It was the first time we had done this and it went really, really well.
“We had heavy rain and gale force winds and then the sun came out and it was amazing.
“Some of the Jack In the Green people came down after the event in the Old Town. It just felt like a very relaxed family fun day.”
She added: “We would like to do it bigger and better next year if we can.”
