Volunteers needed for bandstand event

ORGANISERS of a nationwide live music event are looking for volunteers in Eastbourne to take part.

As part of the final celebrations for London 2012 and the Paralympics Games, musicians and performers are taking to bandstands across the country on Sunday, September 9, between 1pm and 5pm.

However, one place which has not yet got anything planned is Eastbourne, which is why the people behind Bandstand Marathon want to hear from local people who want to join in.

Music of all types is welcomed, with bands, groups, choirs and individual musicians encouraged to take part.
