Spring at the Hastings Centre

Whether you're into arts and crafts, or sports and films are your forte, there's plenty for everyone at Hastings Centre this spring.

We hope you enjoyed our charity bootfair on Saturday 14 February. These will continue to run over the next few months, with the next event taking place on Saturday 14 March. And if you enjoy our bootfairs, you'll love our new charity Craft Fairs, starting Saturday 28 March at 10am. These will be run in a similar way but with a specific focus on crafts that can be made, bought and sold. To set up your own table will cost only £10 (or £12 if you require table hire from the building), and entry is free to the public. We're really looking forward to starting these events, which are open to all. For more details, please contact Jackie Moule on 01424 718400, 07938828795 or email

And if you're joining us for the Craft Fair on 28 March, why not stay for our family film night? We were thrilled to see over 70 people join us for our recent free screening of Brave, and this time we'll be showing The Incredibles (PG), taking place at Coffee Box from 5pm. Don't forget that we want to see your best superhero costumes on the evening! Entry is free, doors open at 5pm, cinema-style snacks and drinks will be available and our licensed bar will be open. What better way to spend a Saturday night with the family?

Don't forget that Coffee Box is available for private hire, too! Why not host your own film night, party or family celebration with us? We have plenty of parking space, in-house catering, a licensed bar, and friendly staff who are available to serve at your events. Get in touch with us today!

Easter is only a few weeks away, and King's Church will be celebrating with two family-friendly services at the Hastings Centre on Easter Sunday (5 April). Come along at 10am or 6:30pm for an Easter celebration featuring live music, performances, stories, hot cross buns and, in the morning, a free chocolate egg for every child under 11. This is always great community celebration and we'd love to see you there.

For sports fans, we have plenty of events coming up: the next Hastings Kickboxing Academy Fight Night will be on Saturday 21 March; American Pro-Wrestling will take place on Saturday 16 May; and West Hill Boxing Club will have their tournament on Saturday 30 May. Our last Kickboxing Academy Fight Night was a real success, with nearly 600 spectators from across the country watching the entertainment in our spacious and fully-equipped auditorium, enjoying our in-house catering and visiting the licensed bar at Coffee Box. We were also thrilled to host the last American Pro-Wrestling event, and we're looking forward to more high-energy entertainment in the coming months. For more information and to book your tickets, check out these events in our calendar.

At Hastings Centre, we host a huge range of events and have facilities for all occasions. Call us on 01424 753322, email, or better still, come and visit! Pop in for a coffee, visit one of our regular bookings or chat to our staff to see how we can help. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Bootfairs, baby ballet, and Brave!

From family film nights to Valentine's with a twist, we've got the rest of February covered at the Hastings Centre!

Thank you to everyone who took part in Coffee Box's straw poll to choose our next family film. We're excited to announce that during the the February half-term break we'll be showing [drumroll please...] Brave! Following the huge successes of our last two events, we'll be emerging from the winter season with this heart-warming Disney adventure featuring a defiant Scottish princess (PG) on Saturday 21 February. Doors open at 5pm, drinks and snacks are available from our licensed bar, and in keeping with the theme of the evening we want to see your best Scottish costumes! Bring the kids, cousins, aunts, grandmas – we look forward to seeing you here!

And, if you're looking for somewhere to be this Valentine's Day, come to visit our indoor bootfair. We've been hosting regular charity bootfairs on the second Saturday of each month, and with more opportunities to buy, sell, meet new faces and give to worthwhile local causes, why not join us for our next event? Please contact Andy Moule on 01424 718400 or 07711 077212 for more information on running a stall or coming along. We'll be running the fair on Saturday 14 February between 10am-12pm, and all proceeds will go to local charities such as Surviving Christmas, the Snowflake Project, Hope Kitchen and Hastings Foodbank.

Don't forget that the Hastings Centre is a high-quality, versatile venue that can be used for all kinds of events. We have numerous regular bookings taking place across the week, including within Coffee Box. With Baby Ballet, Tumbletots and Totz Klub for the kids; Ridgeway Dance classes running mornings and evenings across the week; Street 20 cricket; various fitness classes including Tomboogie, Fitsteps, Marie Dove Fit Club, Weight Watchers and Power Hoop; St Leonards Bridge Club; and King's Church meetings every Sunday morning and evening, there really is something for everyone.

For more information about our regular bookings, please email or call 01424 753322. Alternatively, you can host your own event with us. Why not plan a film night with friends in one of our various rooms, or throw a party in Coffee Box with our licensed bar? Our in-house catering team are available to provide anything from a cold lunch for two to a three-course dinner for 100+ guests, so make an enquiry today.

There's plenty going on at the Hastings Centre this month, and we'd love to see you at one of our events or to host one of yours. Get in touch with us today to see what we can do for you.
