Britain's largest Mardi Gras (French for Fat Tuesday) event - March 1st through to 5th.

A celebration which showcases Hastings’ thriving music scene – opening its doors to a wealth of musical talent, from skiffle inspired renditions of modern classics, to Mexican themed mariachi, and from electro-swing to ex-Sex Pistols, there was certainly something for everyone. 

Saturday saw 15 minute acoustic sets in each of a variety of pubs around Hastings Old Town; hastily packing up and moving to the next audience, whilst the waiting one quickly sets up in their place, making for quick turn-arounds and never a dull moment.  And with buskers and bag-pipes in the streets, one was never far from the sound of live music.
