Back to Hastings now and Sussex By The Sea. Whilst Brighton loves its mackerel in May (and
everyone should head down to the Fishermen's Museum below the King's Road for
the traditional blessing of the Mackerel and nets in mid-May every year: this year's date still to be announced) 2016 will
showcase the fifth ode to a herring in Hastings.
Smoking demonstrations, food stalls, local
beers and wines give the herring a standing ovation. And why not? And hopefully before then we'll find a photo of some herring!
