The Extreme Cellists, known for their performances in out-of-the-ordinary places such as on cathedral rooftops and summits of mountains, performed on Hastings Pier as part of a 14-day whirlwind seaside tour in aid of two charities.

Between July 20 and August 4, the Cellists - 40-year-old Jeremy Dawson, 56-year-old Clare Wallace from Sheffield and 36-year-old James Rees from Chester - are visiting all 58 surviving piers in Great Britain, giving a performance on each.
