Eastbourne Bandstand

Eastbourne BandstandEastbourne's first bandstand was built in 1893 and a Municipal Orchestra was formed in 1899. There is a commemorative plaque at the rear of the current Bandstand in memory of Eastbourne bandsman John Wesley Wooward who was one of those playing on the Titanic when it sank on April 15 1912. The current Bandstand was built in 1931 and cost 10,000. It is one of the most distinctive sights in Eastbourne with its blue dome and golden finial. In recent years the Bandstand has been filmed for the National Lottery's 'Winsday' television commercial and for pop music promotions for Blur and Del Amitri.
