The weekly musical experience will see the Bandstand transformed into an outdoor disco.

Alternating between Disco Nights and Live Band Party Nights each week, Tuesday August 1 has a live four-piece party band ‘Aka’, as they take children through a range of pop tracks and party favourites, led by lead singer Mel Hayes.

Eastbourne councillor Margaret Bannister said: “These evenings are a superb way to introduce younger music fans to the Bandstand.”

Parents can join in or sit back and watch the kids having fun with a chilled glass of wine from the bar.

Leo the Lifeguard will be meeting children and leading the conga around the Bandstand, and there will be a bubble machine on disco nights. Kid’s Party Nights run every Tuesday from 7.30 – 8.30pm (doors open 7pm) with DJ Oli on August 8 and 22, and live music from Aka on 1, 15 and 29 August. Tickets in advance cost £4 per adult and £5 per child, or £5 / £6 on the door.
