PEOPLE are furious with Eastbourne Borough Council that our beloved Bandstand will reman shut in 2022.

Now a new idea; ‘Let Sheikh Abid Gulzar buy Eastbourne Bandstand’

Here is resident Jordan Stanley: “I think we should see if the Sheikh wants to buy it. He has spent so much money restoring the pier and all off his own back with no funding.”

Denise Yates replied: “What a BRILLIANT idea 🙏🤞..he could have as much gold as he likes as long as he preserves it and gives it back to Eastbourne…He would really be a hero saving that.”

She added: “Wouldn’t it be great if he took the bandstand on …it has so much to offer Eastbourne and has been for a very long time ..beautiful building as well …with some TLC 👍
