Our third year, funded by Arts Council England, Hastings Borough Council and private patronage was a defining year, the festival achieving national recognition as we explored Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe on the tricentenary of publication. The festival increased to its present eighteen days duration across the Easter school holiday and offered over 50 events and activities. The twilight week enabled the extended run of the performance series which sold out over both the initial performance run and the extension.
