Christmas carols, free parking and more...

We were delighted to welcome over 100 people who joined us to enjoy our free Christmas family film, Elf, last Saturday afternoon. Festive staff in our on-site cafe, Coffee Box, did a tremendous job of welcoming our guests, providing a spectrum of hot drinks, snacks and Christmas treats in a warm, friendly atmosphere. The licensed bar was open, too, proving that the film didn't just attract the kids!

The film event was one in a series throughout the year, where Coffee Box opens its doors for a free showing of a themed film. Look out for our events in the new year as we will be continuing to show family films at the earlier time of 4pm during the dark winter nights. On Saturday 17 January we'll be screening the family flick Mr Popper's Penguins, starring Jim Carrey, so save the date and bring your friends and family along.

Alternatively, if you're looking for something a little more traditional this weekend, visit Hastings Centre on Sunday (14 December) as King's Church presents The Greatest Gift, a family celebration of Christmas. The afternoon service is fully booked, but there are still spaces for the 7pm service, which will be a great opportunity to bring along your friends and family. This is always a hugely popular Christmas carol service, and we're expecting hundreds of visitors from across the town, and further afield, so book your tickets here now to avoid disappointment.

And, to say thank you to all of our customers over this year, we're offering free parking from Christmas eve to Monday 5 January. If you're using the Conquest Hospital at this time of year, or need to park your car in this area for any reason, please feel free to use it free-of-charge over this period. If you would like to make a donation to local charity Surviving Christmas instead, our parking machines will be set up to collect donations.

Coffee Box is open until 3pm on Tuesday 23 December, so come in and make the most of the Christmas treats until then. It will reopen at 10am on Monday 5 January 2015.

Don't forget to make a note of Hastings Centre events, and sign up for our e-newsletter so that you never miss an opportunity to visit us or use our facilities. We're looking forward to welcoming you at the weekend and over the Christmas period and hope to see you all again in 2015!
