Overview
More
The current bandstand was built in 1935, with its unique semi-circular design and blue domed roof; there is no other like it in the United Kingdom. It has a main arena, middle and upper balconies and seats for 1,600. For many years the Bandstand has played host to a full programme of concerts and events and has survived as a outdoor musical entertainment venue because of its ever changing programme, introducing new audiences and new entertainment's without forgetting the more popular traditional concerts. The Bandstand to this day plays an important part in the musical entertainment on the south coast offering around 140 - 150 concerts per year.

So glad to see this being used as an outdoor music venue. Really well maintained and lots of shows prepped to perform here. Definitely will come and watch one or 2 shows here. Loved strolling through on a sunny February day.

We always like to include the bandstand in our walks along the seafront when visiting Eastbourne. It's a beautiful iconic landmark. When visiting this week loud pop/rock music was being played from speakers, which totally ruined the beauty of the place. I really could not...More
