Hastings Speaks: A Day in the Life of a Town

Hastings Speaks
A Day in the Life of a Town

Hastings Speaks will use the art and love of writing to create a lasting record of contemporary Hastings. In doing so, they offer a chance to make connections across the past and present through our everyday lives.

Inspired by the Centre for Mass Observation, Hastings Speaks held a local Diary Day on Thursday 12 May. Residents of 1066 Country recorded a day in the life, and submitted it to the project.

The Hastings Speaks blog will be uploading as many of these diaries as possible to provide a glimpse in to everyday life in 2016, 950 years after the invasion of 1066.

A live literary event will be held in September.
