With the sun in the UK at record breaking shine, and weeks of bank holidays coming up, we’re excited for one of the biggest events of the year in Eastbourne – the Beer & Cider festival!


Set on Eastbourne’s seafront Western Lawns on May 24th – 26th, with beautiful views and plenty of seats to soak up the sun while enjoying great food and drinks, the three-day extravaganza promises to be bigger than ever.

With a range of award winning ales and bottled beers, ciders, perries, wines, gins and cocktails, those of all tastes are welcome, from the drink aficionados to those just looking to enjoy the day. An impressive host of food stalls will also be on hand to help soak up the drinks.


Live bands will hit the festival stage for entertainment throughout the weekend to complement over 100 real ales, ciders and perries available to sample, and if you fancy learning a little more about what you’re drinking, CAMRA have provided volunteers to give advice and tips for the perfect beverage.


A firm favourite for families too, there will be entertainment for the little ones to ensure everyone has a great day! Ticket prices will depend on the day/time you choose but little ones under 5 always go in free, and children’s tickets are only £2 each.


If you’ve never visited the western lawns that will be playing host to this event, they in themselves are a reason to drop in, for incredibly expansive sea views to add to the beauty of the gardens. 


Events like these make us excited to live in such a beautiful area with such beautiful views, and we’re proud to see the community come together to celebrate, whether old or young or in a family, all are welcome – see you there!


If you have any questions about the area or planned community events, let us know, we’re here to help!
