Hastings International Piano is an independent charity (registration number 1192703) that was formed in 2020, but its story stretches back more than 100 years. The Hastings Musical Festival (charity registration number 261351), from which it was born, has been taking place in Hastings since 1908.

As the piano competition grew we decided in 2020 to make Hastings International Piano a charity independent of the mothership, the Hastings Musical Festival.
