Hastings Pier Reopening – Help with more archive images.


Roy Brigden.….Hi, I’m part of the volunteer archive team working for Hastings Pier Charity which is building a digital collection of material about the Pier and its history. This will be used in the public programmes and interpretation when the Pier reopens in summer 2015. One of the themes will obviously cover all forms of music presented on the Pier. Contributors to this site have some marvellous images and stories so I wondered whether we could put out a call for help? We would love to have digital copies of reasonably high resolution of posters, adverts, tickets, photos etc relating to gigs on the Pier. These can be emailed to me or they could be brought in to the Hub (the old swimming baths by the Pier) where the archive team meets every Wednesday morning 10am-1pm. We can scan material on the spot there. We would also like to talk to anyone with memories and connections to music on the Pier. We are in touch with Andre but obviously there are others. We would much appreciate your assistance, Regards, Roy Brigden        r.brigden186@btinternet.com
