Eastbourne Bandstand

Another fabulous week on the Eastbourne Band Stand

The Central Band completed another nine concerts on the famous band stand where we played every afternoon and also Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings.
Wednesday evening combined the 1812 overture and fireworks; Thursday evening featured the dance band with vocals from Ray Lowe and Jenny Brady.
The band has been asked back for a week in 2020 August 2 until 7 where we have played since 1976.

D Day Title

D Day 75

The band was honoured and privileged to sail with the 300 D Day veterans on the Fred Olsen cruise liner Boudicca; the veterans were entertained on board by the concert and dance bands as well as after the incredibly moving service at Bayeux where the French Police even closed the motorway from Le Harve to Bayeux to allow smooth passage for these wonderful old gentlemen. What an event and congratulations to the Royal British Legion for their vision and organisation.
