Eastbourne is proud of its well preserved 1930's bandstand. Here you can enjoy a variety of concerts from Tribute Bands and 1812 Firework Concerts to Military Bands.

Eastbourne’s first bandstand was built in 1893 and a Municipal Orchestra was formed in 1899.

There is a commemorative plaque at the rear of the current Bandstand in memory of Eastbourne bandsman John Wesley Woodward, who was one of those playing on the Titanic when it sank on April 15 1912.

The current Bandstand was built in 1935 and cost £28,000, engineered by Leslie Rosevere. It is one of the most distinctive sights in Eastbourne with its blue dome and silver finial. In recent years the Bandstand has featured in numerous television programmes such as Foyle’s War, and is shown in the opening sequence of BBC South East News.
