Each year, things to do in Eastbourne seem to get better and better, with the annual AEGON International Tennis Championships each June now bringing more than 30,000 visitors to the town.

Most festivals take place between May and October, and include various vintage motor displays, a marathon over Beach Head and across the South Downs, a very colourful beer festival, and extreme sports at the Go Fast Speed Days event. Each year in August, the Airbourne (Eastbourne International Airshow) is the crowning glory and is the UK's largest free coastal airshow, being staged over four days and attracting more than 600,000 people, together with the world-famous Red Arrows display team.
