You may have questions about how the current circumstances affect your Hasting Contemporary membership. Here are the answers to the questions we think you may be asking.

WHAT HAPPENED TO MY MEMBERSHIP DURING CLOSURE?
All memberships have been extended by at least five months to reflect our period of closure. To check your renewal date please email membership@hastingscontemporary.org. If you pay by direct debit, your payment date may be changed to reflect your extended renewal date – you will be notified in writing before any changes are made.

Thank you for continuing to be part of Hastings Contemporary – your support is more crucial than ever.

WHAT ABOUT MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS?
Membership benefits are under review, and we anticipate that we will be able to allow members to visit without booking and to bring guests to the cafe soon. Please bear with us, and be assured that we will restore member benefits in full as soon as we can.

We no longer issue complimentary tickets to members, due to our charitable status and Gift Aid rules.

I HAVEN’T BEEN RECEIVING MEMBERSHIP EMAILS
Please contact us at membership@hastingscontemporary.org with the email address you want to use. Follow us on social media for regular updates, news and notifications. Our new membership database allows both members with a joint subscription to receive emails – so if only one of you receives emails at present, please send the second email address to membership@hastingscontemporary.org

WHO HAS TAKEN OVER FROM BOATYARD IN THE GALLERY CAFE?
The cafe is now run by Education Futures Trust, who have partnered with us to open new community cafe The Drift. To start with, The Drift is offering a simple menu of tea, coffee, soft drinks, paninis, daily specials and homemade cakes. The menu will expand over time. To learn more about Education Futures Trust and the work they do, visit educationfuturestrust.org

WHERE HAS BOATYARD GONE?
Boatyard will be reopening in St Leonards-on-Sea this summer. In the meantime, you can visit sister restaurant Farmyard at 52 Kings Road, St Leonards-on-Sea TN37 6DY. We wish Kate, Ben and the Boatyard team every success with their new ventures.
