The Grand Hotel Eastbourne has been named among the world’s top 20 venues at the prestigious Star Awards 2015.

Twenty venues from across the world were announced as winners in the Star Awards 2015, from a starting list of over 2,000 on Friday evening at the Oriental Club in London.

As the only global luxury venue awards, the program celebrates the quality, performance and reputation of the world’s best venues qualified to host the most memorable events.
