The Hastings Old Town Carnival Court selection evening took place at the East Hastings Sea Angling Association's Clubhouse on the Stade on Sunday Evening 10th April and an opportunity was taken to use the club’s new 'balcony' to pose the finalists (the competition took place indoors!). Over 70 entrants were whittled down to 18 finalists – April Grant 18, Charlotte Kemp 16, Kassey Winbush 17, Chrystal Ripley 16, Hope Morton 17, Cheryl Douglas 22, Anne Neve 29, Kemi Seetaram 18, Nicole Pavitt 19, Daisy Caruana 16, Lisa Atfield 16, CJ Dunn 16, Harriet Beard 26, Lucy Richardson 16, Amina Karera 17, Alice Wright 16, Rochelle Leighton 16 and Lilian Worthington 39

The hard task of judging fell to Barbara and Margaret (Lydd Carnival Association), James Barton  (Mr England Runner-Up) Heather Steele (Miss England Finalist and manager of New Look, Hastings) and Laura Hind (of Xtreme Tanning and Beauty in Bexhill Road) After very difficult deliberations the title of Hastings Old Town Carnival Queen, Miss Hastings was awarded to April Grant with Nicole Pavitt and Lucy Richardson as princesses. Tamara Gates, last year's Old Town Carnival Queen and Miss Hastings has returned as mentor, chaperone and deputy Carnival Queen / Miss Hastings.  The event was very ably managed by Lucie Hide and Tamara Gates. Lucie was herself a former Hastings Old Town Carnival Queen and the evening’s success was due to her expert management of the whole event.
