In New Orleans and Rio they call it Mardi Gras, in Venice it’s known as Carnivale and Hastings has “Fat Tuesday” (English for Mardi Gras).

Traditionally occurring on Shrove Tuesday which is the last day before Ash Wednesday, “Fat Tuesday” is a chance for people to let their hair down before (in theory) observing the restrictions of Lent. Our Festival borrows heavily from the New Orleans take on Mardi Gras, combining the enjoyment of good music, a flair for dressing up and partying. All things Hastings excels at!

The 10th anniversary promises quality live music, Mardi Gras madness and plenty of surprises.
