Hastings Musical Festival

Festival 2021

We just wanted to let you all know that planning for the 2021 Festival is in full swing! We hope to be 'Covid Free' by next March but whatever happens we will definitely be holding a Hastings Musical Festival in 2021.  We will keep you up to date with all our plans.

Thanks to all our wonderful competitors, volunteers, funders and white rock staff! We had a fabulous 2020 Festival with a wonderful Festival Finale Concert and you can see some of the photos in our gallery. 

 We are not going to the Festival office at all at the moment so please keep in touch by Facebook or by email info@hastingsmf.org.uk.
