Despite the chilly weather, this year’s Herring Fair was as popular as ever when it opened its doors this morning (Saturday 18th).

This is a free event where visitors can sample fresh and locally smoked herring and a variety of other dishes, washed down with locally produced wine, beer and cider. The event continues tomorrow (19th) from 11-4 on the Stade Open Space.

People also have the opportunity to improve their cooking skills with well known chef C J Jackson from the famous Billingsgate Seafood Training School. Cooking demos take place at

12noon-1.30pm and 2pm-3.30pm - tickets from Hastings Information Centre.
