Beaujolais Day is marked in France on the third Thursday in November with fireworks, music and festivals. Under French law, the wine is released at 12:01 a.m., just weeks after the wine's grapes have been harvested. Parties are held throughout the country and further afield to celebrate the first wine of the season.

Come and celebrate at St Mary in the Castle with wine, cheese and live music by 'The Hot Taps'.

The Hot taps is a new British South Coast musical sensation homegrown in Hastings and St.Leonards-on-Sea.

The band recently formed in March 2018, but the musicians have very good pedigree, having performed in Europe, America, Asia, and the Middle East with a host of famous and lesser bands over the years. Having this experience under their belt, they decided they were just about good enough to risk themselves on the British circuit.

The Hot Taps comprises of Frank moon - the oud wielding, Theremin bending composer of Royal Ballet fame; Tom Clarkson - The opera singing double bass player and sweet talker; and Benoit Viellefon - the French chanteur escaped from London after being ‘caught red handed’ too many times.

Get a FREE glass of Beaujolais with your ticket, or go all out and get a free glass of wine AND a selection of cheeses (a vegan option available).
