Stade Saturdays is back for another summer season of music and performance and twists and turns on Hastings Stade Open Space.
Season three begins a little later than previous years but still provides an exciting mix of cultural goodies from dance to new circus, from folk to classical and from Latin to African. And that’s not forgetting food and fish in all shapes and sizes.
While regular annual events like the Hastings Shanty Festival and the Gilded Hand Buskers’ Fair return, there is also a rich blend of the best of ‘unplugged’ music and outdoor performance on offer.
Once again Stade Saturdays will offer something for everyone including opportunities for you the public to participate by performing on the Eight Foot Square Day or as part of the Sunday Jive Live, both in August.
Watch out for this last, as technically it’s a Stade Sunday rather than a Saturday with an array of dance workshops and live music from all over the world as part of the Hastings and Rother three-day Journeys Dance Festival.
Other than this, most of the Stade Saturdays events start at 7.30pm but check out the myriad of Hastings summer festivals and events that are also on or near the Stade such as the Seafood and Wine Festival, the Fish Fest, the Old Town Carnival and Hastings’ own inimitable Bonfire Night.
