Hastings Fat Tuesday have announced that Radiator Arts will be hosting two FREE workshops in order to help people pimp up their brollys in preparation for the Umbrella Parade on Sunday 3 March 2019.

The 10th anniversary of Hastings Fat Tuesday is promising to be the most lavish to date, with plans to make the Umbrella Parade a truly spectacular event.  So please join in to decorate your umbrellas and become part of this annual extravaganza that has received both regional and global attention in the last year or so.

The Parade will start from The Stade at midday on Sunday 3 March and travel down the seafront, round the roundabout and back up to St Mary In The Castle.

Radiator Arts are on board again this year organising two fabulous FREE workshops – so get involved and pimp your umbrella ahead of the parade at one of their drop-in open sessions.

These are free and suitable for everyone…and of course children must all be accompanied by an adult. You will need about one hour but you can spend longer if you wish.

Organisers have said: “We will have a wonderful array of materials for you to use but only a limited number of umbrellas – so if you can bring your own that would be great.”

The workshops will be held on Saturday 2 March from 11am – 4pm at:

  • The Stade Hall, 20 Rock-A-Nore Rd, Hastings TN34 3DW
  • Ore Community centre, 455 Old London Rd, Hastings TN35 5BH

Any queries please contact the team through their Facebook page (Radiator Arts) or email radiatorarts@btconnect.com

The full Hastings Fat Tuesday 2019 programme will be announced soon.
