Hello and welcome to the shiny new face of the Eastbourne Festival blog. We're feeling excited about next years Festival and we hope that you will too when you read what’s in store for Festival 2012. We'll be posting regularly during the weeks running up to next year's festival, so be sure to visit to keep up with the latest news, you will be able to hear more from the musicians, artists and performers taking part and find out about getting involved yourself.There are already lots of exciting events registered to take place in Festival 2012, from one off pop up events, psychedelic fringe 'happenings' and burlesque evenings to live music, open houses and stand-up comedy, but there is still room for lots more.
If you're thinking of putting on an event or helping out with the overall running of the festival we'd love to hear from you, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you happen to be a stiltwalker, juggler, stand-up comedian, poet or street dancer how about taking part in the Streets of Eastbourne event on Saturday the 7th April 2012? We're looking for stagehands and stewards too. Get in touch.
