Series 9, Episode 1 - Hastings
Hastings is mainly known for its famous battle, but they don't like to go on about that. Apart from the 70-plus businesses with 1066 in the title, you hardly see it mentioned.
A lot has happened there since 1066 though: they have an annual Pirates Day, for example, where everyone dresses as pirates and gets drunk. They have Jack In The Green day, where everyone paints themselves green and gets drunk. They also have a statue of a giant winkle, an alley under the prom with a spectacular light show and there are lots of lovely pubs too, where you can watch one of their thousands of bands... and get drunk.
Oh, and there's a building supplier called William the Concreter.
