Hastings History House 2018 - Hastings Old Town Carnival Week

Hastings History House 2018

Hastings History House is open from 11am to 4pm every day of Old Town Carnival Week. The rest of the year opening hours are Thursday to Sunday, 11am to 4pm. The History House has a wonderful archive of historical information and anectodal notes about many of the Old Town buildings along with a good collection of Kelly's Directories, which are available to view. The volunteers are very happy to answer questions and will usually go the 'extra mile' to find out facts which they don't already have. So, if you have just moved to the area and want to find out about your house, drop in and have a chat. Or perhaps you've lived here for ages and want to find out about things around you, just pop in. Volunteers are ALWAYS needed! If marketing is your thing, perhaps you can help to publicise what they do. The latest technology is something most people battle with so if you have more knowledge than the average person, maybe you could offer your skills to the History House. Research is time-consuming but thoroughly enjoyable, so some of your time might be given to the History House to wade through documents? Wheelchair accessible. Contact Details: The History House is run by Old Hastings Preservation Society, Charity No. 611762. T: 01424 424744 E: ohpscontact@gmail.com W: www.ohps.org.uk
