Hastings Fat Tuesday is a unique event which has been fully embraced by the community of our fantastic town, as well as a festival which has grown over 10 years to receive considerable attention nationally.

the Fat Tuesday team are proud that despite nearly all of the festivities remaining free to access for members of the public, all musicians, performers and professionals that take part get paid for their efforts.

In order to keep the main events free, they are now appealing to their supporters to become an official ‘Friend of Hastings Fat Tuesday Music Festival’.

FRIENDS contribute £35 per year (the equivalent of less than £3 per month), which will go towards supporting the 140+ musicians and bands who take part.

In return, Friends receive:

Priority ticket booking for our headline shows ahead of the general public.

Invite to VIP launch reception.

A goodie bag with free Hastings Fat Tuesday pint glass, badge, mask and commemorative programme.

So why not chip in with a contribution to a great annual event?
