2017 Events Calendar – Smugglers Adventure & Hastings Castle

Welcome to our  events calendar, keep checking back as it will be regularly updated throughout the year!



Smugglers Adventure, Zombie Apocalypse Fright Night, Friday 27th, 7PM. 


Smugglers Adventure, RX Shantymen performance, Saturday 28th, 12pm, 1pm and 2pm

The RX Shantymen are a local acapella folk group with a mission to spread the gospel of shanty singing and maritime music, as well as entertain their audience and have a good time doing it.

The group will be performing three sets of popular shanty tunes in the underground cave attraction, which takes guests back in time to the days when smuggling on the Sussex coast was rife.

The RX Shantymen will be performing at St Clements Caves at 12-12:30pm, 1-1:30pm and 2-2:30pm, with breaks in between the performances.

The performances are included in your general admission ticket. Book online to save money.

Halloween Week fun, Monday 23rd – Sunday 29th

Smugglers Adventure are organising a  ghostly quiz trail around the eerie caves for younger visitors. See if you can spot the bats hidden around the caves and have you got the brains to help Gary the Ghost find his friends. There will also be a spooky colouring station and plenty of Halloween-themed goodies for sale in the gift shop. Look out for the Smugglers Adventure staff in fancy dress.

Across from Smugglers Adventure at Hastings Castle, you can help Vinnie the vampire find his bats in the family friendly activity, as well as explore the ruins, head on down into the dungeon and watch the 20 minute video show on the Battle of Hastings.


Both attractions shut for winter in November. Meanwhile, Blue Reef Aquarium Hastings is open daily from 10am.
