Hastings Old Town Carnival Association and the Old Hastings Preservation Society welcome you to Hastings Old Town Carnival Week. We hope you will enjoy this exciting and varied programme of special events.
We are grateful to Skinners Sheds, Hastings Printing Company and Frenchs Skip and Grab Hire who have sponsored the programme this year. Hastings Old Town Carnival Association and the OHPS need your donations to meet the weeks expenses and to support local good causes, that is why this year we are suggesting a donation of 50p for your programme.
The Old Town community have organised some great events to celebrate our wonderful town for you to enjoy.
From Talitha Ford
I am Talitha Ford and I am 16 years of age. I am currently sitting my GCSE’S at St Richard’s Catholic College, and in September I will be attending Hastings College to study Fashion and Clothing. It is an honour and privilege to have been chosen to represent Hastings as a Carnival Princess. I am looking forward to meeting new people and taking part in all the events that take place this year. I am excited to experience this wonderful year ahead alongside Queen Chloe and Princess Hannah.
From Chloe Stretton
I’m Chloe Stretton, I am 16 years old and currently in my last year at St Leonards Academy where I am studying Dance and Music. In September I am going to Rye Studio School where I will be taking A levels in Performing Arts as my great ambition is to become an actress. I enjoyed last year as a carnival Princess and feel very honoured to be chosen as 2015 Carnival Queen. I am looking forward to taking part in all the events this summer with Princess Talitha and Hannah. Hope to see you around.
From Hannah Burgess
My name is Hannah Burgess, I am 16 year old and in my final school year of school at St Leonards Academy, I am currently studying English, maths, science, ICT, dance and music. Last year I studied Spanish, drama and history, I hope to leave school with 11 qualifications. My hobbies include dancing, singing and acting, I train with a company in London called West End Kids and I also train with Hastings School of Contemporary Dance, and a performance company by Leonie Eldridge. It has been an incredible honour to be able to be a part of the Hastings Carnival Court 2015 along with Queen Chloe and Princess Talitha. I can’t wait for the year ahead, representing Hastings will be a great opportunity.
