Only just over 3 weeks to go before the British Music Hall Society’s big summer event in Eastbourne. If you haven’t got your tickets – book now as there are only a few seats left and you wouldn’t want to miss all the fun, would you?

Here are just a few comments from members of the audience who attended  Day By The Sea in 2015 and 2016:

It was a fantastic day. Couldn’t have been bettered. I haven’t sung so much for ages. I’m still a bit hoarse!”

“Thank you to so many talented people who kept us entertained all day and to all the organisers who made it such a memorable and enjoyable time.”

“What a fantastic event!”

“Many thanks for another brilliant Day By The Sea.”

“The question on everyone’s lips is …will there be another Day By The Sea next year? I for one bloomin’ well hope so!”
