LETTER: Do readers have any photos of the town’s old bandstands?

I am preparing a talk about Eastbourne’s five bandstands

for the autumn and would be grateful for help from your readers over events namely;

Does anybody have a photograph or information about the special ceremony at the Grand Parade Bandstand to celebrate the end of the second world war please?

I understand it was the tradition of the military bands to arrive for their week long performances on the Friday and parade from the pier to the Grand Parade bandstand.

Does anybody have a photograph of this please?

The Pier bandstand was rather more folderols.

I would like to find a picture of Pierrots and some information about programmes if possible.

I look forward to hearing from you and to giving you full credit.

I can be contacted at 43Upland Road, Eastbourne by telephone on 721825 or by email to owenboydell@talktalk.net.
