Amber stops by for a pint and song

AMBER RUDD MP DROPPED IN ON THE HASTINGS ROUND TABLE COMMITTEE who are organising the Hastings Beer and Music Festival.

Amber was delighted to catch up with the Hastings Round Table chairman Paul McCleary and committee to make sure the festival was fully prepared to welcome crowds of local residents. Amber has been a supporter of the iconic Hastings Beer and Music Festival for many years.

Amber commented on the festival saying:

“This fantastic 4-day event is a testament to the Hastings Round Table and the spirit of the local community. It is also a great way to showcase everything Hastings has to offer from craft ales to local music.

“It is wonderful to see the community come together to celebrate and have fun. Anyone who has not visited the festival should go down and see everything it has to offer.”

Amber has been assisting with promoting the festival, which is celebrating its 38th year anniversary, as it encourages thousands of people to visit the town and explore all the festival has to offer. Furthermore, all of the money raised, which currently stands at £1 million, goes straight to local charities.

Set on an idyllic hillside plot overlooking the sea at the Hastings Oval, the festival expects around 10,000 local residents to attend over 4 separate days of entertainment. The festival offers attendees the opportunity to experience everything local: music, beer, food and the chance to catch up with the community.

The HBMF organisers are confident that this will be the best year to date for the festival as it continually grows year on year. It is important to remember that the festival is entirely staffed by volunteers, therefore, every penny raised is donated to local charitable causes. To date, the festival has raised over £1 million.

Starting on the 3 July, the festival caters for a range of musical and culinary tastes, ending on the 6 July. On the Wednesday the festival offered a cinema night; the Thursday had a full evening of Prom music; the Friday an Ibiza-style classic house party; and Saturday offered the headline act Massoake who recently performed at Glastonbury.
