Advance notice
In 2015 Eastbourne Festival will be moving! Festival 2015 will take place for three weeks from 5 July 2015 to 26 July 2015, including three weekends, rather than at Easter. July is one of the busiest months for visitors to Eastbourne and we can look forward to warmer weather and the chance of more outdoor events. It also gives better opportunities for local schools.We would also like to encourage greater participation from all aspects of our community. Make a note of these advance dates, particularly if you are an event organiser or artist. More news will follow in due course.
