Hastings Herring Fair returns
Now in its fourth year, the Hastings Herring Fair will take place on Saturday, 31 October between 11am and 4pm and Sunday, 01 November between 11am and 4.30pm at the Stade Open Space, Hastings.
Organised by Hastings Borough Council and funded by FLAG (Fisheries Local Action Group) the fair will showcase the herring otherwise known as the 'silver darling of the sea' and the many ways it can be prepared.
Deputy leader of the council, Cllr Kim Forward explained:
"We are pleased to be able to fund the Herring Fair for another year. The aim is to promote the local herring industry and showcase the herring which is so versatile and abundant at this time of year.
"In true Hastings Festival style there will be lots on offer including cooking demonstrations at the Classroom on the Coast, fish smoking demonstrations in the marquee and of course a great live music line up. Join Radiator Arts at their flag making workshop and have your say about food by taking part in Brighton University's food research project.
"This free event will combine food stalls, local beers, wines and ciders all under cover at the Stade so the festival will not be affected by wet weather!"
