Beach Life to Return in July with Drive-In Movies - Eastbourne’s Beach Life festival will undergo a change in format this summer, returning as a new drive-in movie event at Princes Park. In response to social distancing measures, the two day festival from 11-12 July 2020 will be taking Eastbourne to the movies, featuring two films a day on a giant screen, all with perfect singalong soundtracks.

Film fans can choose from family favourites Frozen 2 and The Lion King (2019) in the afternoon, and for grown ups in the evening the PG-rated Grease and Mamma Mia will bring comedy, romance and a rousing rendition of hits. With viewers tuning into the film’s audio from their own parked vehicles, audience members will be asked to remain in their cars, unless using the food and drink or toilet facilities on site, which will be run with strict social distancing and additional cleaning measures. Tickets will be on sale from 8 June, priced at £20 per car, and will be available for purchase online only by visiting
