Hastings is and continues to be an attractive visitor destination for people in the South East, particularly day trippers and for national and international tourists. Many of the FLAG projects offer new experiences for these visitors and aims to encourage return visits and to help them become more aware of the importance of the town’s sustainable fishing industry, the local environment, and to learn how to identify, buy and cook more fish.

Projects that particularly offer something new few destination visitors are:

“Follow the Herring”, brought together a national touring production of performance art ‘ Get up and tie your fingers’ and the ‘ Coat for a Boat’ exhibition created by the Customs House, South Shields
The Hastings Fishermen’s Museum holds a unique archive of fishing related artefacts and photographs mapping the heritage of the oldest inshore beach based fishing fleet in the UK.
Building on the successes of the previous Herring Fairs – the FLAG in partnership with HBC is looking to extend these fantastic fish events to regular June and November fairs.
