For those that don't know, Hastings Old Town Carnival Week supports local charities and organisations, and relies on donations from the public and local businesses. If you want to help, you can make a contribution during the week by putting something in a collecting box! See the donations page for details.
Old Town Carnival week would not be what it is without the generosity of those who help organise the week. This year, Skinners Sheds, Frenches Skip and Grab Hire, and the Hastings Print Company have sponsored the programme.
Our photographers aim to go to as many events as possible, to record the participants. Feel free to browse....
