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 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. The partnership have just announced PEACHES, as part of the Turner Prize 2023 Opening Weekend and JULIAN MARLEY in October.

PEACHES, Saturday 30 September at Eastbourne Winter Garden is presented in association with Eastbourne Alive, Towner Eastbourne and Charleston.  An iconic feminist musician, producer, director, and performance artist, Peaches has spent more than two decades pushing boundaries and breaking barriers, dramatically altering the landscape of popular culture as she forged a bold, sexually progressive path that has opened the doors for countless others to follow.

JULIAN MARLEY on Thursday 19 October at Eastbourne Winter Garden is sometimes referred to as the prodigal son, encapsulating the spirit of Bob Marley like no other –  when he sings his father’s songs it is like a light shining through him bringing hope to the world. Julian Marley is known for his friendliness and accessibility, spreads joy and rastafari wherever he performs and we are delighted to welcome him to Eastbourne for a very rare UK appearance.

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.

The next gig at the Eastbourne Winter Garden is SUEDE – already sold out – on 9 December, with more to be announced in the coming weeks.
