Musicians will be taking to the stage as live music returns to The Pavilion on Eastbourne seafront this month.

The venue in the Redoubt area has built a solid reputation for hosting live music events since it was re-opened following an extensive refurbishment last summer and four dates have been announced for Saturday nights in February.

Musicians will be providing entertainment on Saturday 5 February, Saturday 12 February, Saturday 19 February, and Saturday 26 February between 7-9pm.

Entry is free to all the events and the Pavilion Café and Bar is open from 10.30am-10pm.

On Saturday 5 February Smokestack Duo – a blues and jazz duet – will be performing live followed by Stuart Bligh – Mr Blues Man – on Saturday 12 February, Mel Hayes – a female jazz and swing musician – on Saturday 19 February, and Johnny Swings Jazz on Saturday 26 February.

Councillor Margaret Bannister, Lead Member for Tourism and Culture at Eastbourne Borough Council, which runs the venue, said, “The Pavilion played host to some great live music concerts in the run up to Christmas and on Boxing Day.

“We are building on that success and popularity and holding four live music events on Saturday nights in February. It’s a great opportunity for music lovers to hear some top musicians at one of our newest seafront venues.”

The Pavilion Café and Bar is now open with both indoor and outdoor dining available every day and is located next to the Redoubt Fortress.

The café style menu offers lunch and light bites as well as a licensed bar menu.
