Words, pictures, sound and vision we’ve got Hastings covered

Released today on YouTube is an interview with Hastings’ new MP Sally-Ann Hart. It’s her first interview since being elected MP and we chat about the peculiar traditions of Westminster, her political heroes and what she hopes to achieve as Hastings and Rye’s Member of Parliament.

Over on Soundcloud we’ve launched the latest edition of The Hastings Podcast and first of the new year. Guests include chairman of Stables Theatre and Art Gallery Neil Sellman chatting about the theatre’s first 60 years and about ideas to see it successfully through its next 60.
