Eastbourne Lakeside Festival opens on Saturday 29th June 2019 with a relaxing afternoon and evening of live performance on the Festival stages. Join us for some fine Harveys ales, Prosecco or a refreshing Pimms. Relax into the evening to the sounds of the Leanne Rose Band.

Stay on to see the first nightglow from Model Balloons UK, our event partner. This is the first time Model Balloons UK have visited Eastbourne and they will demonstrate their all weather, radio controlled hot air balloons. Watch Brighton Kite Flyers who will launch their stunning character kites across the sky during the afternoon and evening.

John Searle's funfair and Inflatable slides will keep the kids occupied and Magnificent Motors favourite, Dave Homewood, leads the way with his glorious 1909 Brush Runabout and Easy Company head the vintage military lineup. Seaford and District Buses will display their classic fleet and they are also running a FREE daytime bus service to and from the event. Please visit www.eastbournelakesidefestival.com for full timetable.

Model Balloons UK display the secrets of how radio controlled balloons work. Polegate and District will be offering their 'ride on trains'. Pistons in the Park offers a classic and veteran vehicle show featuring the finest in restored and well maintained cherished marques. Cherry Dance and the Weird Feet project take to the Arena and Dave the T Rex will be on hand to keep visitors in line. TESCO start their big painted rock hunt, hiding rocks recently painted by families at the Park.

Hospitality partners Harveys will usher in their Shire Horses and Dray to the event to the background of local Morris dancers.
