We were proud once more to support Hastings Beatles Day, in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, as this year’s main-stage sponsor. The event, held on Sunday 2 April at the White Rock Theatre, raised over £23,000 for the charity.
As usual, Hastings Beatles Day brought thousands of people to the town, including hundreds of musicians, for an all-day music extravaganza. The acts – who performed across three stages – played a wide array of music written or recorded by ‘the Fab Four’, including solo and other non-Beatles material. Admission, raffle tickets and merchandise sales all contributed to the fund-raising for Macmillan.
Hastings Beatles Day started on a modest scale in 2000, and has since grown exponentially. The annual event has been held at the White Rock Theatre since 2007.
