Eastbourne Silver Band

Genre

Brass Band

Description

Eastbourne Silver Band was formed in 1950. It is a self-financing and very friendly non-contesting band, formed from players of all ages who enjoy music and playing together.

The Eastbourne Silver Band is probably best known, by visitors to the town, for its many regular appearances on the town’s iconic Bandstand, when performing the Sunday afternoon concerts and Wednesday “1812” nights. It is, however, active in many other areas as well as it attends and supports the events of various other organisations’, garden and church events and, since 2011, has both organised and presented the Eastbourne Annual Remembrance concert during November.

Eastbourne Bandstand

Venue Type

Bandstand

Description

The Busiest Bandstand in the UK offering a variety of live musical entertainment with over 140 events each year; from Tribute Shows to 1812 Firework concerts to kids entertainment.

The current bandstand was built in 1935, with its unique semi-circular design and blue domed roof; there is no other like it in the United Kingdom.

It has a main arena, middle and upper balconies and seats for 1,400.

The building of the Bandstand formed part of the main seafront improvements, cost £28,000 to construct and was surmounted with a stainless steel spire. The project engineer was Leslie Rosevere.

The first concerts were given on the 28th July 1935 with a total of 10,400 attending all three concerts and paying 3d each. The Bandstand was officially opened on the 5th August 1935 by the Lord Lieutenant of the county, Lord Leconfield with an audience of 8,000.

For many years the Bandstand has played host to a full programme of concerts and has survived as a musical entertainment venue because of its ever-changing programme, introducing new audiences and new entertainments without forgetting the more popular traditional concerts.
