Programmes for Old Town Carnival Week are now available from the Tourist Information Office, Hastings History House, Hastings Fishermen’s Museum and some pubs and shops in the Old Town.

Beginning on July 27 with the Old Town Criers Competition, it is a packed week of events with many of the old favourites - the Nearly on the Beach Concert, Torfield Allotments Barbecue, Bike Race, Pram Race and Treasure Trail. There are some new events and walks, open gardens, a West Street Party and a Lost Pubs and Breweries Walk. Nine days of non stop entertainment culminates in the Carnival Parade on Saturday 4 - why not dress up and join in? This year’s theme is Anniversaries.
