St Leonards Festival ‘delights’ local and visitors alike

The St Leonards Festival, held last Saturday was a great success, with thousands of people packing into Kings Road and Warrior Square.

Councillor Kim Forward, deputy leader of Hastings Borough Council and lead member for tourism, said afterwards: “I am delighted that the council is still able to support this fabulous festival. It attracted thousands of residents and visitors on Saturday, on the hottest day of the year!

“The weather was a bonus, and allowed us all to enjoy the day long activities in Warrior Square, and street market in Kings Road, right in the heart of St Leonards.

“A huge amount of work went into making the festival such a success. I’d like to thank 18 Hours, who organised it on behalf of the local community and the council, and the many community volunteers who helped them, both in advance and on the (very long!) day of the festival itself.

“We are rightly proud of our many events in town, long may they continue, to the delight of our local community and our visitors.”
