EASTBOURNE FESTIVAL 2009 WILL TAKE PLACE FROM 11th - 26th APRIL 2009. A new Eastbourne Festival Community Interest Company has been formed to organize and promote an Eastbourne Festival for 2009 and future years. Plans are already under way to build upon the success of the 2008 Eastbourne Festival.
During March 2008 over 150 Festival events including music, dance, literature and artists Open Houses were held at venues across the town. Organisers were pleased and encouraged by the number of visitors supporting events and the huge enthusiasm for the Festival.
Organisers of Eastbourne Festival 2009 are committed to promoting excellence, diversity and imaginative interaction across artforms and will encourage the development of a broad programme of traditional, contemporary and experimental events for future Festivals.
