Eastbourne Bandstand will not be opening in 2022.

Social media over the weekend has been highlighting this claim locally, and people will be shocked and upset.

This has been confirmed on the Bandstand website.

Louisa Richardson posted: “All been very quiet from the Council, who have neglected it for many years. Eastbourne Residents deserve better, as do our pubs, bars and restaurants and tourists.”

Jess Holt posted: “I will be absolutely gutted if the bandstand goes, one of my favourite places. This town is a bloody shambles.”
