HFT 2024 needs you

You may have read in today’s Hastings Independent Press that HFT 2024 may not go ahead.

Arts Council England, which over past years has made major contributions to the Fat Tuesday Festival budget, has been unable to support the organisation for 2024, recognising the outstanding quality and ambition of the festival but citing lack of funds and high competition.

At this time we are determined to continue to raise additional funds in order to deliver key elements, and have launched a crowdfunder to support the festival. We appreciate your support if you are able to donate, and would appreciate help in sharing as widely as possible.
