Fat Tuesday Festival

Hastings Fat Tuesday

Fat Tuesday is proof Hastings knows how to party and the UK’s largest authentically timed Mardi Gras festival returns for its 8th year from Friday 24 -Tuesday 28 February.

This time around it is bigger than ever with hundreds of gigs taking place across many, many venues, over the five days, and the majority of events are free entry. There is something for everyone, whether you want to chill out, dress up, or dance until dawn.

It all began in 2009 with the aim of creating the largest Mardi Gras celebration in the UK.  It has long been recognised that Hastings has an incredibly diverse and well-developed music scene and, Fat Tuesday is now one of the most eagerly anticipated events in Hastings’ cultural calendar.
