The unique Hastings Fat Tuesday Festival is back with a bang! Bigger, better and more jam-packed with events than ever before. Over the five days, Hastings (a town rumoured to be twinned with New Orleans) and St Leonards, will play host to Britain’s fastest growing music and arts festival and the UK’s only main stream Mardi Gras event. Since the Festival started in 2009, Hastings Fat Tuesday has rapidly become one of the most anticipated events in the town’s busy social calendar. This year, during its run from Friday 8th to Tuesday 12th February there was 20 venues hosting 56 acts performing 166 gigs …now that’s a Party!
