Every Saturday June - October 2014
June 28: Lost in Translation Circus - A five person, steampunk inspired circus theatre show about a visionary and his team who want to reach the moon. The story of a wildly imaginative poet and inventor, and his extraordinary attempts to travel to the moon. Lost in Translation are a zany bunch of extravert circus performers who take the audience into a dream world of brass and copper, a world of imagination and absurd possibilities, using spectacular aerial techniques and big cinematic imagery.
July 05: Bare Knuckle Parade - "Drenched, shirt soaking pandemonium". Born on the cobbled streets of Bath, Bare Knuckle Parade brings together five musicians who share a 'sing until your jaw is broken' approach with scorching musical attack. Don't miss the chance to dance your socks off to the latest in the new wave of young British folk rock bands.
July 12: Graffiti Classics - This comedy cabaret string quartet comprising 16 strings, 8 dancing feet and 4 voices has one aim - to make classical music wickedly funny and fantastically exhilarating. Graffiti Classics bursts the elitist boundaries of the traditional String Quartet with its hilarious all-singing, all-dancing musical comedy cabaret show. It's a classical concert, a gypsy-folk romp, an opera, a stand-up comedy set and a brilliant dance show all rolled into one, from Beethoven to Bluegrass, Offenbach to Elvis, Strauss to Saturday Night Fever!
July 19: Hastings Shanty Festival 1pm and 7.30pm - Featuring: Graeme Knights, Jim Mageean, Bosun's Call, Titus, Kerry &' Mandy, Chris and Dom and the Hastings Shanty Singers, the third year of the Hastings Shanty Festival has rapidly become a gem in the world shanty calendar. This year it will take place on two sites from 1m on the Stade Open Space and at the Fishermen's Museum and from 7.30pm on the Stade Open Space. Once more an array of the finest stars of the traditional sea shanty firmament will come to Hastings to sing, including the Hastings Shanty Singers who many will know well from their regular Thursday night sessions at the Stag in All Saints Street.
July 26 and 27: The Annual Hastings Beach Concert - The best local bands perform behind the East Hastings Angling Club, just beside the Stade Open Space in aid of the Hastings RNLI.
