Marvellous illustrator and first Children’s Laureate, Quentin Blake, has captured the vitality and vibrancy of historic, old town Hastings in his drawings. His collection is on display at the local Jerwood Gallery and two vast boards even feature in the cafe! His style is energetic, fluid and lively – perfect for the seaside characters and stories attached to this exciting and jolly town. From boats, babes, to bikers and birds, you are stepping into a humorous story book; it’s a noisy, busy, wild world, where everyone is whoever they want to be! Hastings, East Sussex holds the Guinness Book Of World Records for the most pirates in one place, the total being 14,231 pirates. Arrrraaahhhh!
