In the spotlight! Providing an oasis of positivity in a desert gloom

Are you a performer?

Would you like to be a performer?

Do you just want to show off?

We’re living in strange times, we’re told we need to stay at home, to isolate ourselves from others, the news is all a bit depressing.

At Hastings In Focus we’ve been thinking about what we can do and we’ve concluded that you can find all the news you’ll ever need about COVID-19 on every other news source in the country and we think that will be more authoritative than anything we can provide.

Therefore we are going to try and become an oasis of positivity but to do that we need your help.

Can you sing, dance, read poetry, play an instrument, act out a comedy sketch or perform a dramatic scene?

What we’re asking is that you record your performance using your phone or a video camera then send it to us. You can email it to or upload it to our Facebook group and we’ll do the rest.

Here’s Hastings Mayor Nigel Sinden in fine voice.

It doesn’t have to be a well known piece, it could be a song or poem you’ve written yourself or your very own brand of comedy.

Performance venues across the town are closed so lets make the town’s virtual performance venue and let’s demonstrate that Hastings really does have great talent and along the way we can celebrate the very best of Hastings and St Leonards.
