Hastings Pier is set to host a packed events schedule seven days a week following its reopening next month, after Music First Events was granted a three-year lease to operate the East Sussex landmark.


The local events company was approved for temporary control of the pier’s operations last summer, with an option to extend if successful taken up by the owners after a positive visitor response.

“We are confident most of you will agree that it was a major success despite the restrictions we operated under,” said a Music First spokesperson. “Well, we are proud to announce that we have now taken on a three year lease and we have plans to make those years very memorable for all of us.”

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you that visited us and all those that worked alongside us last year, at a time when the world was uncertain we certainly created some wonderful memories.”

The company said visitors could look forward to “a summer of socialising, dancing, events, live gigs, football and fun” when restrictions ease.

“We have always believed that Hastings is the most wonderful place to live and that our beloved Pier is the jewel in its crown, last summer confirmed that for us, but it was just the start.”
