Eastbourne Winter Garden and the De La Warr Pavilion are proud to announce a brand new partnership that  brings an ambitious live music programme to Eastbourne Winter Garden.

Launched on 21 May 2023 with a sold-out Wembley Stadium warm-up from Brit-pop legends BLUR,  EWG x DLWP then presented Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club on the Spring Bank Holiday. Since then we’ve had the luxury of Peaches, Julian Marley, Suede and Kaiser Chiefs taking to the stage.


Other events coming up include:

THE DAMNED on Saturday 14 December 2024, revisiting the music from their 80s line-up and welcoming drummer Rat Scabies back to the stage. Tickets HERE

Travis on 17 December 2024, as part of the Raze The Bar Tour (their first UK headline tour since 2022!) Tickets HERE


Stewart Drew, director and CEO of the De La Warr Pavilion says:

‘It has taken DLWP nearly 20 years to build up its live music programmes, from a point of unviability to presenting some of the most exciting national and international acts in Bexhill. We are now thrilled to be working in close partnership with Eastbourne, helping them to animate the gorgeous Winter Garden, and supporting the wider creative and skills ecology as we celebrate Turner Prize in Sussex.’

Chris Jordan, Artistic Director of Eastbourne Theatres says:

‘We are very pleased to be working with DLWP to bring superb live music to the newly refurbished Winter Garden in the heart of the Devonshire Park.  Our unique venue will be playing host to a wide range of artistes and bands as we continue to broaden the year-round program of entertainment in the Devonshire Quarter, alongside our exciting theatre season.’

This new collaboration with DWLP is a great opportunity to reinforce the importance of music and arts in the continuing development of our stretch of the Sussex coast as a vibrant, dynamic cultural destination.
