AT last, Eastbourne Borough Council has spoken about why Eastbourne Bandstand will remain closed in 2022.

“Subject to Cabinet approval in February, we will soon begin a £750,000 project to repair the stage area and parts of the main structure.

We have been very clear that a temporary closure is required during this time.

We look forward to welcoming audiences back to the Bandstand when this essential work is completed.

Bandstand shows are continuing at the Welcome Building and proving extremely popular with residents and visitors to the town.”
