We attended a few of the tribute shows at the bandstand. They were ALL fantastic. Reasonably priced, comfortable. Only downsides 20p for a loo visit AND the bar can’t cope with demand.

I wouldn't do a review on a bandstand but this is no ordinary bandstand. Built in 1935 with a blue ceiling and even for those days built in mood lighting. Radical today but built and designed 84 years ago. Great effects and cool to watch...More

Just arrived and saw a superb band rocking away at 11am, a lovely atmosphere and start to the new year. Great to see Eastbourne oldies moving, and thank you well done to the cancer research volunteers too.

The skies over Eastbourne were filled with music old and modern and alight with fireworks as a wonderful evening of renditions from an amazing silver band ended on a rousing finale of the 1812 overture. Fantastic!!
