The 53rd Hastings Christmas Chess Festival was held at the end of the year 1977. Fifteen grandmasters and masters were invited to compete in a round robin format at the premier event. The participants were (in order of Elo): Tigran Petrosian (2645), Vlastimil Hort (2620), Gyula Sax (2565), Roman Dzindzichashvili (2535), Evgeni Sveshnikov (2520), James Tarjan (2495), Leonid Shamkovich (2485), John Fedorowicz (2440), Shimon Kagan (2440), Simon Webb (2430), Jonathan Mestal (2420), John Nunn (2410), Jonathan Speelman (2395), Jonathan Tisdall (2375), and George Botterill (2350). The average of the combined ratings of the assembled players qualified the tournament as a Category X event. Dzindzichashvili beat out the former world champion Petrosian as well as former three time Hasting winner Hort to take clear first place with +7 at the final.
