Britain's largest Mardi Gras (French for Fat Tuesday) event - was this year 21st through to 25th February.

A celebration which showcases Hastings’ thriving music scene – opening its doors to a wealth of musical talent.

Hailed as Hastings’ answer to SXSW in Texas, or Brighton’s Great Escape festival, Hastings Fat Tuesday is one of the jewels in the town’s cultural crown and celebrates its 11th year in 2020.
