Hastings Week Bonfire Book Launch and much more. Not in the printed programme
Afternoon
Jenny Lind - High Street, Launch of 'Lives and Times of Kindred Spirirts - The Bonfire Societies of Hastings & St Leonards' by Tony Streeter. The book of 272 pages covers the history of Bonfire in the town from 1815 onwards on a year by year basis. A forensic examination of the bonfire societies themselves and of bonfire events, but it also includes much else - the anti-Papal riot of January 1851; the Salvation Army and Skeleton Army disturbances of 1883-84; neglect in the workhouse in 1884; Hastings first ever carnival in 1895; the construction of the trams in 1905; and the poverty marches of the early twentieth century.

The bar will be turned into a courtroom for the afternoon to present 'The Trial of the Arch Traitor Guido Fawkes.' a light hearted, bawdy, irreverant farce. The trial will be repeated several times during the course of the afternoon and all participants will be in appropriate courtroom dress of course. The audience are the jury - they decide if Guy Fawkes is innocent or guilty. There is even a possibilty that the Pope will make an appearance as a character witness for Guy Fawkes!
Between the trials there will be live music from Jeremiah Longshanks.

Sprat & Winkle Run (Vintage Commercial Vehicles)
11.00 am (approx)
This will be the 5th year that the Sprat and Winkle Run for commercial vehicles has been running from Sevenoaks down to Hastings to bring the Hastings Week celebrations to a close. The run started as an idea by the London & South East Area of the Commercial Vehicle Society who were looking for a seaside destination for one of their old commercial vehicle runs.

The Historic Commercial Vehicle Society was founded in 1958 by a group of enthusiasts who between them owned less than a dozen preserved commercial vehicles . Today the Society has nearly 2000 members who own 4,500 vehicles, such has been the growth of interest in the preservation of commercial road vehicles. Probably the best known of our activities is the annual London to Brighton run held on the first sunday in May. Further information can be found at the society`s website at or email at hcvs2011@gmail.com

The Sprat & Winkle Run attracts around 70 different commercials including buses and coaches, and now is a permanent fixture on the preservation scene, so please come along to the Stade to have a good look at the vehicles and feel free to chat to the owners and drivers who have come down to Hastings, we look forward to meeting you.

The event is named The Sprat And Winkle Run because the finish is at The Stade, Winkle Island, so we send a load of Sprats to catch the Winkle!!
