Bring on the Big Bands at Bandstand

With Eastbourne’s Bandstand season now in full swing, the introduction of ‘Big Band Sound’ Thursday night concerts will bring the era of Jazz and Swing to Eastbourne seafront, kicking the weekend off early each week from June 25.

Featuring performances from ‘The Central Band of the Royal British Legion’, ‘The Swingshift Big Band’ and ‘The Johnny Spice Swing Orchestra’, the regular Thursday night slot will offer up a dose of nostalgia with ‘Big Band Sounds’ from local Big Bands and Military Bands.

Doors and bar open 7.30pm for all ‘Big Band Sound’ nights for an 8pm concert start finishing at approximately 9.30pm. Tickets can be purchased online at, or by calling the Eastbourne Seafront Office on 01323 410611, which is open daily from 10-6pm in May to September, and until 9pm on concert nights.
