Hastings is to set to have its very own Folk Festival in May 2014.
Starting just after the Jack in the Green festivities, the Hastings Folk Festival will run from May 6th to 10th in various venues around the Old Town. The organisers promise that it will be “a low budget, no bureaucracy, easy-going event for folk who prefer their entertainment natural and unadorned”.
Headlining the Festival will be the fabulous Barbara Dickson, who is playing at St Mary in the Castle on Saturday 10th. Tickets are £23 and £18, call 07967 685478 for more details.
We’ll be previewing the Hastings Folk Festival in our next issue, but in the meantime more info can be found on their website: hastingsfolkfest.org.
