SLIDESHOW: Launch of Hastings Week

Hastings Week’s opening ceremony on Saturday (October 10) drew in the crowds at Queen’s Square in Priory Meadow.

Mayor Bruce Dowling, together with Nigel Hogben, chairman of the Hastings Week committee, announced the official launch of the week-long festivities outside the town hall before a parade, made up of standard bearers and other groups marched towards The Stade.
