South Coast Weekend Pt.1: Revolution Show, Hastings

The second annual Revolution Show went off last weekend in the historic English seaside town of Hastings, well, St Leonards On Sea, but everyone was saying Hastings. A small show, in an art gallery with attached cafe and cinema, it had the now regular mix of art and bikes, and while it was small, nearly everything that was there was really good.
