Visitors to Eastbourne International Airshow can look forward to a real musical showcase of evening entertainment with Bandstand concerts, movie screenings and firework spectaculars extending Airbourne into the night.
When the flying comes to an end, visitors can still enjoy the buzz of the airshow excitement into the evening with Bandstand concerts on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, including tribute and Big Band.
Friday promises an extended schedule of flying with the Red Arrows headlining an evening programme at 7pm, while Saturday promises a Night at the Movies with Grease being shown on a giant screen, and the dazzling firework finale rounds off the four day extravaganza on Sunday night.
Eastbourne Borough Council Cabinet Member for Tourism, Cllr Neil Stanley said “The evening entertainment at Airbourne creates a real festival feeling in Eastbourne with lots for visitors of all ages to enjoy during the day and on into the evening. The Airbourne Bandstand concerts offer something totally different this year with two brand new tribute nights to JLS and Showaddywaddy, something for all generations! With Saturday Night at the Movies promising a great big screen experience too with a free beachside film showing, I hope we see lots of visitors extend their day out at Airbourne long into the evening!”
Kicking off the evening entertainment on Thursday evening is Big Band Night with Swingshift performing all the hits from this memorable era.
Friday night promises extended flying until 8pm with displays from the Belgian F16, Matadors Team, Hawker Hurricane, Blades and Red Arrows performing a dusk flying display before a JLS tribute act take to the stage at the Bandstand performing some of today’s most popular hits.
Saturday promises a step back in time to the 60s and 70s with one of the world’s best loved musicals Grease being shown on a big screen on the Western Lawns at 6pm, and a Showaddywaddy tribute concert at the Bandstand at 8pm for a rock ‘n’ roll night.
Sunday promises a firework display to take visitors’ breaths away as a fitting end to the thrilling four day event with a colourful display of pyrotechnics launched from Eastbourne Pier at 10pm.
