About the Event

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.


Classes are open to the public. Tickets for individual sessions or for a whole day can be purchased from the White Rock Theatre Box Office from January 2019 (add link) A season ticket for the whole Festival is also available.


Some of the best performances from the Festival are chosen to create a Festival Finale Concert which showcases the range and diversity of the talent on display during the previous two weeks. Prizes are awarded for the audience's favourite acts.

The 2019 Finale Concert will take place on Saturday 16th March at 7pm.

Tickets go on sale at the White Rock Theatre Box Office from January 2019.
