Why do I have to pay to get in?
The cost of putting on a festival of this scale is enormous and our admission charges go towards covering some of the outlay on things such as marquee hire, fencing, generators, toilet facilities, bar equipment & scaffolding. Any profits we make are handed over to the Hastings Round Table for distribution to local good causes. So you’re paying to help us make money for charity! In 2017 alone, we raised more than £60,000 for local charities and causes and since we started in 1981, we’ve raised over £1.2m
Can I bring my own food and alcohol?
For the cinema night on Wednesday 4th July, Friday 6th July and Saturday 7th July we will not be allowing food or alcohol to be brought into the event. For Prom night on Thursday 5th July, you are welcome to bring your own picnic, prosecco and flags!
