Hastings Musical Festival 2021

About the Event

Hastings Musical Festival takes place at the White Rock Theatre over 3 weeks in Feb/ 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 and in the junior classes we are also awarding first, second and third festival awards.
