The Birley Centre

The Birley Centre

The Birley Centre offers a versatile space for a variety of performing arts activities including concerts, conferences, dance, exhibitions, gigs, master classes and workshops.


The internationally-renowned Norah Sande Award provides a chance to hear some of the world's most exciting young adult pianists battle for the title, a cheque for £2,000 and a recital opportunity. On Saturday, semi-finalists perform 20-minute programmes.

The audience is welcome to join and leave between performances. On Sunday, three finalists play a full recital programme of classical, romantic and contemporary pieces, none of which will have been played during the semi-finals.

Last year's winner, Maria Luc, an RNCM scholar, had already played at Wigmore Hall, Wales Millennium Centre, the Chichester Festival and as a regualr orchestral pianist for the New Mozart Orchestra before delighting the Birley Centre audience.

Eastbourne is entered from the north via the A27 or the A22. If approaching from the A22, at the large roundabout just north of Polegate, follow the signs to Willingdon (3rd exit) through the traffic lights at Polegate, until you reach the Willingdon roundabout.

If approaching Eastbourne from the A27, at the junction with the A2270 traffic lights, turn right (signposted Polegate and Willingdon) and follow the A2270 until you reach the Willingdon roundabout.

At the roundabout take the second exit directed to the town centre (west). Follow straight on the A2270 until you come to a roundabout with the railway station on your left and the Prezzo restaurant on your right. Then turn right into Grove Road, keeping the library on your right and go past the police station, following signs for Devonshire Park, which is adjacent the College. The College will appear on your left in Grange Road. Old Wish Road is at the far end of the pitch which is in front of the school.

From other directions, head for the seafront and turn inland opposite the Martello Tower (the Wish Tower) joining Carlisle Road. Turn right into Grange Road and immediately right into Old Wish Road.

The Birley Centre is a 10 minute walk (or 5 minute taxi ride) from the station. Follow Gildredge Road to the end, then cross over South Street and Furness Road to College Road. The Birley Centre is situated at the end of the road on the right, at the junction between College and Carlisle Roads.
