Hastings Pier offers a truly unique and beautiful setting for events with its versatile venue and stunning views across the coastline. We welcome all proposals for public and private events on the Pier and are always on the lookout for novel and unusual ideas. There are three large distinct outdoor spaces for hire capable of holding open-air concerts, markets, fun fairs, sporting events and much more….. The Pier Head is the largest area – this is a blank canvas which can accommodate up to 2,500 people, and is ideal for large scale ticketed events.
All of our events are outsourced, so if you wish to hire the Pier you will be required to provide the documents, insurance, equipment, operating staff and marketing support for the event. We have a recommended list of local suppliers available upon request who are experienced working with the Pier. As Hastings Pier Charity is a Community Benefit Society with Exempt Charity status, it is important that all events have a mutual benefit to the Pier. Our hire costs are very competitive but vary according to the type and duration of event you are running.
