WELCOM TO TH CREATIV HOTSPO


The historic and picturesque town of Hastings is a mix of Victorian elegance and modern transformation, with vibrant and thriving business, tourism, leisure and education sectors. Hastings’ identity and reputation as a thriving national and international arts centre is gathering momentum. Hastings is sometimes referred to as Brighton’s little sister, and shares a lot of the same quirky, artistic qualities as its neighbour. But Hastings is beginning to move out of the shadows and make a real name for itself. ... And we much prefer the more recent reference of Shoreditch-on-Sea, because Hastings shares many of the same characteristics that the swanky London suburb is synonymous with. Many of the national news outlets have also been backing Hastings as a very attractive place to live, work, study and play (and of course, we agree!). The Guardian says that the town is undergoing an artistic renaissance and creative talents and businesses are flourishing alongside other like-minded people and the fun spirit of the town. Many high profile creative people are starting to make the move from Brighton and London.

THE LONDON EVENING STANDARD CALLED HASTINGS THE “NEW JEWEL IN THE SOUTH EAST COAST” ENCOURAGING READERS TO VISIT THE ANCIENT OLD TOWN ‘TWITTENS’, WHICH ARE LINED WITH INTERESTING AND QUIRKY BOUTIQUE SHOPS

In August 2016, Hastings was named as a hotspot for thriving creative industries. It was identified among 47 creative clusters across the UK that showed that Hastings was starting to have a significant impact on the industry.

STUD LIFE |8


DENT Student life isn’t just about studying. It’s about making friends, gaining life skills, and exploring. Hastings is a fantastically unique, independent and bohemian town to explore and spend your free time in.

Hastings Town Centre, as it is today, is a modern pedestrian shopping centre, filled with high street brands, coffee shops, and snack shacks.

We could tell you all about the high street shops where you can spend your student discount, but that’s the same in most towns and cities. What we’re dying to tell you about is the Old Town. Wandering through the quirky streets of the old town or ‘twittens’ as they’re known, you’ll get a real feel for the true spirit and eccentric vibe that this ancient town has.

Photo by John Fox - www.johnfoxphotos.co.uk

There is a whole range of vintage and quirky boutique shops and restaurants to grab your attention; many of which have featured in national press and style magazines. If you’re looking for vintage, then you’ll be sure to find it in The Butlers Emporium. Hooks hang from the wooden clad walls displaying all sorts of memorabilia and treasures, fit for decorating your new surroundings with. You’ll be able to create your own unique style and find ‘one-off’ items in clothing and textile specialists, Warp and Weft Styling. Where else would you be able to order a Thai green curry in a bookshop, and enjoy a Lamb Tagine while sat amongst handbags and accessories?

Trip Advisor can give you an idea of the best places to eat and drink, but nobody really knows Hastings like we do. Here are some of our favourites:

The Crown is a very popular pub and highly recommended for its range of craft beers.

Cafe Maroc is a BYOB Moroccan restaurant serving traditional Moroccan feasts.

The Dragon Bar is a swanky London cocktail bar, where its resident DJ plays tracks straight from vinyl on his mini decks.

Ye Olde Pump House is in the heart of the old town and has a stunning interior full of character and is a great place to grab a drink or eat. You’ll find some of the best fish and chips at The Cod Father, The Old Town Fryer and the Kingfisher.

Porter’s Wine Bar is situated in a Grade 2 listed building and regularly has performances from award-winning jazz singer, Liane Carroll. The Boulevard Bookshop is a bookshop by day and Thai restaurant by night, offering a fine range of home-cooked Thai dishes.

The Printworks has two bars and is a great place to try something different from small breweries, vineyards and craft beers. This is a great night out. Walkers wine bar and bistro is a great place for lunch, as well as dancing the night away.

DID YOU KNOW? HASTINGS IS FULL TO THE BRIM WITH OVER 80 AMAZING BARS, PUBS & RESTAURANTS.

| 10

The town has three cinemas, a large shopping centre, Old Town, park, arcades and amusements, a Go-Kart track and the UK’s largest adventure golf complex. To the east, you’ll find a glorious stretch of beach, with Europe’s largest beachlaunched fishing fleet, the iconic black fishing huts, with views of the East Hill in the background. The Jerwood Gallery has very much made itself at home in this part of town since opening in 2011 and offers a ‘uniquely British experience’. Heading west, you’ll find the famous Hastings Pier. After being burnt down in 2010, the pier re-opened six years later. It acknowledges the history and charm of the old one by using some of the old planks in the restoration. It now offers a clean, modern, spacious area for people to


Photo by John Fox - www.johnfoxphotos.co.uk

explore. Since re-opening, the pier has been a hive of activity with open-air yoga, cinema screenings, a circus and live music. The pier was once a popular venue for live music. The Rolling Stones, The Sex Pistols, The Who and Jimi Hendrix all played here in their heyday. It looks as if the pier will once again become a hot spot for live performances after Dizzee Rascal, Madness, the Levellers, and DJ sensations MK and Hannah Wants all played sold out sets. Throughout the year, it’s hard not to get carried away with all the parties and festivals going on in the town. The Seafood and Wine Festival, Jack in the Green, Pirates Day, and its very own version of Mardi Gras - Fat Tuesday are some of the best!

HASTINGS IS A GREAT STUDENT TOWN, OFFERING VALUE FOR MONEY, NOT ONLY IN THE EVENING, BUT DURING THE DAY TOO!

STELL URTON

My three years have been amazing! During my second year I won the Student Open Category and the overall Best in Show at the international design competition, Pewter Live. To have been recognised


at this level as a student is a real honour. My sculptural vessels demonstrated an evolution of a functional form and were the result of six months design and testing to combine pewter and glass.

Persistence finally paid off and allowed me to develop a technique which has never been achieved before. My third year has been filled with work experience for a Silversmith in Ashford

and preparing for my final project. I’m so excited to have been offered a place at the prestigious Royal College of Art next year, to study a Master’s in Jewellery and Metal - I can’t wait to start! | 23

Being able to study alongside my current role has worked really well. Lectures fit nicely around my work hours as a youth worker. I’m currently going into secondary schools in Hastings to raise awareness about knife crime. There is a lot I can take from my studies to help get the message across, such as theories of learning, psychology, and how to talk to people. Likewise, the experience I’m gaining at work really helps with my uni assignments. My tutor is brilliant. She has so much teaching and industry experience, I feel like she knows everything. She takes the time to get to know you and how you behave and how you learn. If I even need anything explaining she will be able to find the best way to help. She understands and tailors her teaching to each of us and I think that is brilliant, especially at degree level.
