Now five years down the line, Hastings Fat Tuesday has now grown into a 5 day festival!

Hastings celebrates their amazing local music scene, the envy of many other towns and blows away the cobwebs of winter. This is the 5th Hastings Fat Tuesday and it keeps on getting bigger and bigger, in fact it seems to be the largest authentically themed Mardi Gras in the UK.

Whilst we can't promise you celebrations like these, there are plenty of ways to make this pancake day extra special

They really know how to party!

You’ll find something for everyone over the Fat Tuesday weekend leading up the main event on Tuesday the 4th of March. We have many cottages in Hastings that will allow you to stay and enjoy the festivities! You must come and join the fun, but if you don’t want to be right int he centre of the madness we have some great cottages in Sussex for you to stay in.
