About Us

The Fringe in the 'Stings began as all good Fringe Festivals do, over a few drinks with good friends who agreed that Hastings was ripe for a Fringe Festival. 

Not content to sit back and wait, this plucky group decided to make it happen, and The Fringe in the 'Stings was born. 

Fringe in the 'Stings is run on the smell of an oily rag with help from the Hastings City Business Association. Supported by people who are as passionate as we are, in whichever way they can, whether cash, time, skills or stuff. Without them Fringe in the 'Stings would have just been one of those great ideas that disappeared when the hangover arrived.
