Hastings Beer and Music Festival is a three-day event organised by Hastings Round Table. It is the biggest social event in the area, with stunning sea views from it’s elevated venue, The Oval. The event is entirely staffed by volunteers, and as such every single penny (over £1m to date) raised goes to local good causes.
With a massive selection available in the Real Ale tent, as well as lager, local ciders and wines, high quality local food, and the best local musicians, we’ve grown a reputation as the best beer and music festival in the South East!
The Battle of Hastings Proms kicks the festival off on the Thursday evening. Conducted by Roger Wilcock, Medway Towns Band supported by the Hastings BIG Choir will be playing some of your “last night of the proms” favorites. Flags, bunting, and Pimms will be abound. Get there early if you’re bringing a dining table and buffet!
Next, comes the start of the local band fest, the Friday night. Friday is a great night to get in the mood for the weekend and a great warm up for our headline Saturday night bands, this year we have made weekend tickets available so you can experience the 'full' weekend as a discounted price.
Then there’s Family Day - the Saturday daytime (from 12:00 to 16:00). With lots to keep the whole family entertained attractions over the years have included bouncy castles, stage shows by local schools, stalls by local Scout groups, St John ambulance, and much much more.
And then there’s the Saturday night. The headline bands. The giant big top comes alive with 6,000+ people. The enormous selection of ales flowing. It needs no more said about it. For details of bands and/or beer, please go to our website www.hbmf.co.uk
Beyond that, there’s always a fantastic line of local food vendors, ample toilet facilities, an organised taxi pick up/drop off area right by the entrance, St Johns will be there just incase. After this many years, we hope to have at least the essentials covered! : ).

When & Where
Hastings Round Table
There are approximately 600 tables active in the UK, of which Hastings is for certain one of the most active and unique! Our main focus each year is to deliver the Hastings Beer and Music Festival - officially the biggest social event in the area. It is through this event that we raise tens of thousands of pounds to inject straight back into the community. We do this via a meeting once a month over dinner, and vote on the applications that are presented to us. There is nothing more rewarding than being able to support these local worthwhile causes and make a childs/adults/parents day with the news.
With all the work involved in arranging such a fantastic festival, we make sure we have some fun a long the way. We regularly meet for social events, host family BBQ’s, attend various local community events and get out of town for some sporting activities at times.
