Photographs of the St Leonards Festival 2019
About my Photos of the 2019 St Leonards Festival and Parade
These are my photos from the awesome St Leonards Festival, a great free event that was held on the 29th of June 2019.
St Leonards-on-sea is an interesting town next to Hastings in East Sussex on the south coast of England.
This great annual event includes lots of things going on in Warrior Square Gardens, a street market in Kings Road and a parade along the seafront involving drummers and other groups. Most of my photos this year are of the parade from that goes from Azur Marina Pavilion to Warrior Square Gardens, but I did get some of the other bits as well. Sorry I didn’t get more of the event, but in my defence this event was three days before I was going into hospital for heart surgery, so was trying to take it easy :)
This great free event goes on for ten hours, maybe one day I will stay for it all, the evening bits look great and I have never stayed for that part of the St Leonards Festival. . . yet!
Warrior Square Gardens has over 17 thousands square meters of space for events like this and many others including a rally by the Labour Party and Jeremy Corbyn in July 2017
This is an event I have been to a few times now and it’s always been good, so highly recommend it if you want a fun, free day out to the seaside.
I used to live in St Leonards-on-sea in Union Street, Terrace Road and Eversfield Place right on the seafront, so enjoy having a good reason to go back for a visit.
Photos were all taken by me (Dean Thorpe) with my Canon 70d DSLR and a Tamron 18-270mm lens, which is great for events like this one.
