Hastings Musical Festival takes place at the White Rock Theatre over 2 weeks in March each year. Dancers, singers, musicians and actors of all ages perform in classes which are marked by an adjudicator who is a specialist and an expert in the field. Feedback is given to everyone and the winners of each class are announced. In many classes a trophy is also awarded.
It is with great sadness that we report that Mike Goodger, our Assistant General Secretary and Membership officer, passed away on Friday 20th March at The Conquest Hospital. He will be sadly missed by Festival volunteers, staff and competitors as he has been working with us for a number of years now. At the 2020 Festival a number of you asked after Mike as he had been a permanent fixture outside our Festival Office for many years, giving out certificates and managing queries. His family is holding a private ceremony on 6th April at 2.45pm and although we cannot be with them at this time you might like to send a prayer their way on the day. Deirdre is determined to give Mike a good send off once this ghastly Coronavirus is over and will be organising a thanksgiving service later in the year.
