The Pavilion on Eastbourne seafront will be hosting music nights in the run-up to Christmas and also on Boxing Day.

The café and bar has proved to be a popular destination since undergoing a major refurbishment earlier this year and musicians will be providing entertainment on Saturday 11 December, Saturday 18 December between 7-9pm and also on Boxing Day, Sunday 26 December from 11.30am onwards. Entry is free.

Johnny Sings Jazz and Swing will take to the stage on Saturday 11 December followed by Stuart Bligh – Mr Blues Man the following Saturday.

On Boxing Day there will be music, mince pies and mulled wine with Highway 24 performing with a mixture of Christmas and Country hits.

Eastbourne Borough Council runs The Pavilion Café within the Redoubt area of the seafront. It offers both indoor and outdoor dining with a spacious terrace overlooking the Pavilion Gardens and is fully licensed.

Councillor Margaret Bannister, Eastbourne Borough Council’s Lead Member for Tourism and Culture, said, “Since the café was fully extended and refurbished it has become the perfect stop-off point along the seafront for food and refreshments.

“Now people can enjoy music at The Pavilion during December. These evenings promise to be a chance for everyone to get in the Christmas spirit. It is also set to be a great venue on Boxing Day when people can come along, relax and enjoy more live music, mulled wine and mince pies.”
