The schedule for this has now been published.

I believe the Senior Championships have been shifted one day later, so they start on the Monday and finish on the following Sunday with a morning round. By way of compensation that enables players to play in the weekend opens starting Friday, finishing Sunday.

The usual hotel booking sites have some attractive advance purchase accommodation options. But what to go for, given the schedule?

Plenty of hotels, B&Bs, uni & college rooms, caravans & camping as well as boats.
Possibility of Brexit issues & who knows whether they will have the staff in the summer.
Enjoy - I have NIL chance of my partner wanting our holiday to be spent with me playing any chess,

The chessbase report on Hastings claims that Gormally qualifies for the 2019 British by virtue of his shared first place at Hastings. Presumably he is already qualified by rating and title and the qualifier is someone further back in the standings.

There doesn't seem to be a published list of those already qualified, nor for that matter a note of the leader board in the qualification Grand Prix.

I am sure you are right.
The irony is that it used to be that the British Champion would get an invitation to play at Hastings.
