Plan a Packed Weekend in Eastbourne
International tennis, exciting emergency services simulations, hundreds of brand new cars, food from across the continent and a Manhattan Swing performance are just a taster for the bumper weekend coming up in Eastbourne from 9-11 July.
This weekend, visitors can look forward to a spectacular choice of events as the summer season really gets underway.

Devonshire Park will host the Davis Cup from Friday – Sunday as the AEGON GB team take on Turkey in the Europe/Africa Zone Group II thrilling home play-off against Turkey, promising three days of top tennis action.

Eastbourne seafront will filled with blues n twos as the 999 Emergency Services Display returns to the Western Lawns on Saturday and Sunday. One of the country’s biggest 999 displays, visitors can look forward to a simulated cliff rescue, mock road crash scenes and new for 2010, a special display from the Horsham Working Newfoundlands putting on a sea demonstration.

And Eastbourne Motorshow is back with a bang at the weekend too with new presenter Jason Dawe leading a display of hundreds of new cars, arena cavalcades, and a Children’s Play Area and Go Karts to keep the little ones amused. Eastbourne Bandstand’s weekend concert programme is just as busy, with Friday night welcoming the Sinatra Manhattan Swing to take audiences back in time to the popular swing era as the tribute season continues. Seafront visitors can enjoy music inspired by the West End and Broadway on Saturday afternoon as the Rushmoor Concert Band perform Afternoon on Broadway, while The Catfish Kings perform a rock n roll concert on Saturday evening. And on Sunday, the Bandstand offers a Traditional Afternoon Concert, with a Proms Concert in the evening.

And for visitors enjoying the seafront action this weekend, they will also get to sample goods and flavours from across the channel with the return of the Continental Market from Friday – Sunday lining the middle promenade.

With Eastbourne’s art galleries also offering new exhibitions, including Familiar Visions at Towner showcasing the work of Eric Ravilious alongside that of his son James for the first time, Cheese & Cheese at the Emma Mason Gallery and new works at both Nigel Greaves and Henry Paddon Galleries, visitors have plenty to fit in this weekend.
