A seaside centrepiece has been given an annual makeover in time for summer.

The bandstand on Eastbourne seafront has been cleaned, repaired and painted.

Council tourism director Ron Cussons joined councillor Barbara Goodall in the preparations for the tourist season.

Coun Goodall said: "The bandstand will form one of the focal points of our jubilee celebrations and I am delighted it is being given a facelift.

"It needs to be looking good as we commence our summer season."

The bandstand was built in the Thirties and appeared in one of pop band Blur's videos.

This summer the bandstand will host the BBC Music Live Spectacular as part of jubilee celebrations between June 1 and 4.
