Case Study

Hastings Fat Tuesday

Hastings Fat Tuesday is an annual 5-day music festival culminating on Fat Tuesday (Shrove Tuesday) and is hailed as the UK’s largest Mardi Gras celebration.

It recently won Event of the Year at the Sussex Life awards and was included in the Telegraphs top 13 places to party list!

Starting in 2009, this year sees the event celebrating its 11th year and it is expected to be bigger and better than ever! Since 2017 we have looked after the design and technical aspect of the event’s website and hosting.

Want to see for yourself?

The event is spread over 5 days with multiple different events going on each day so one key aspect of the website is to filter people to the correct day and event as quickly as possible.

This was done by creating a clear grid layout on the front page plus a single “whats on page” with a link in the main menu.

Craft CMS

Craft 3 was our CMS of choice for this project due to its endless flexibility and ease of use.

The team at Fat Tuesday can easily create all kinds of content for their website to help promote the event.


The website is hosted on our VPS with more than enough resources to enable it to cope with the thousands of visits it gets per day without ever slowing down. Additional assets served via a content delivery network ensuring fast load times for all visitors.
