A four-day Vintage Fair is planned for the Summer Bank Holiday Weekend 27th to 31st August. It will feature Vintage Market, Victorian Funfair, Live Music, Artisan Food & Drink, and a Kid’s Corner. Admission is free to the fair and stalls, and there is an open-air cinema planned for each of the three evenings. Free entry is by pre-booked tickets only in order to limit the numbers. Opening times are 11am to 10pm Friday to Sunday inclusive, and Monday 11am to 6.20pm.
There were some concerns raised by local residents. Members of Eastbourne Borough Council and the organiser of the event attended a neighbourhood panel meeting to address these concerns.
Some concerns were allayed whilst others remained, especially around the consultation process and security, both within the curtilage of the event and outside in the wider area. The Events Team reassured residents that similar events are held in other areas of the town, e.g. Princes and Hampden Parks, without any adverse consequences.
