A few years ago the Society was re-named the Eastbourne Organ Club and in 1993 was again changed to include the words "and Keyboard" as a move to widen the interest and raise the popularity to help increase our membership. Our monthly concerts are provided by professional musicians who deliver a musical show to suit all ages and genres. In May 2017 the club changed its name to Eastbourne Piano and Keyboard Club to widen its appeal to more people. As from September 2017 the club will be meeting at it's new venue The Fishermens Club, Royal Parade, Eastbourne. BN22 7AA.
We are fortunate in having a close contact with Bonners Music Superstore, Eastbourne. They are always willing to provide all their new customers with details of our Club's monthly performances etc. and of course all you need to know about musical instruments. A great place to see a wide range of music products to suit all genres.
Holiday visitors to Eastbourne and surrounding areas are always very welcome .Those staying in the seafront hotels can easily get to the Eastbourne Fishermens Club. The venue is situated in the Royal Parade end of the seafront approximately a quarter of a mile east of the Pier travelling towards the Sovereign Harbour.
