The face of shopping in Eastbourne has been transformed with the opening of the £85 million extension of newly rebranded shopping centre, The Beacon.
As we were going to print, the state-of-the-art eight screen Cineworld was due to open in the extension on July 12, in time for the highly anticipated live action adaption of Disney’s The Lion King.
New signings just announced for the first floor of the extension were Taylor’s Restaurant and Sports Bar and The Bok Shop, a gourmet fried chicken restaurant.
The first phase of the extension was opened just before Christmas with the arrival of H & M, Next, FatFace, Schuh, Jack Wills, New Look, Flying Tiger and Paperchase.
Earlier this year saw the opening of Nando’s, the first restaurant on the extension’s first floor and further stores, the UK’s leading parent and baby retailer Jo Jo Maman Bébé and worldwide fashion jewellery brand Lovisa.
The 170,000 sq ft extension is being funded by Legal & General. The official two-day launch of the new Centre, with a packed programme of exciting attractions, will be held in the summer.
