What support does Hastings Borough Council provide?
Hastings Borough Council supports arts, culture and heritage across the town in a number of ways.
Hastings Museum & Art Gallery is a council-operated, free cultural resource for residents and visitors.
We contract the management of the White Rock Theatre, provide funding and support for Hastings Contemporary, and many of the festivals in the town including the St Leonards Festival. We also support Coastal Currents Arts Festival, Hastings International Piano and Fat Tuesday Music Festival amongst others.
We also offer funding to local creatives and organisations through the Arts & Cultural Development Match Funding Grant, the Foreshore Charitable Trust Grants Programme and East Sussex Arts Partnership.
Our Culture Team also provides advice and guidance to artists and arts organisations, including support with funding applications. To get in touch email email@example.com.
