The weather can play a big part in the success in any outdoor event. In the UK it cannot be guaranteed that the weather will be fine and dry. It is essential that you plan in advance.
As Hastings is on the coast you should plan for all types of weather. If high winds are forecast, some temporary structures may need to be re-configured or removed. Electrical storms are also possible and should be considered in your Weather Management Plan. If the weather is likely to be hot and sunny, you should ensure a good supply of water is freely available. "High winds can be a common cause of event cancellation in the UK. As wind speed can be measured in a variety of ways the Beaufort scale can be used to ensure you understand the wind speeds being referred to."
