Herring Catch

The celebration of the Herring catch is a very old tradition in Hastings, East Sussex – a tradition that has happily just been revived. The Hastings Herring Fair was held between 23-25/11/2012 and celebrated all things Herring-y, including delicious herring in bread rolls filleted swiftly on the spot before frying, smoked and pickled herring, and a ‘blessing of the nets’ by the local priest. A great atmosphere, plentiful drink and seafood and singing of traditional sea shanties.
