Tickets are now on sale for one of Eastbourne's most popular back tie events in the town's social calendar.

The Mayor of Eastbourne's Charity Ball takes place on Saturday, March 11, at The Grand Hotel featuring first-class entertainment and food throughout the evening.

All funds raised will be split between the Mayor's two chosen charities of the year - Eastbourne Mencap, which supports local adults with learning disabilities, and Eastbourne Foodbank, a charity that provides emergency food for people in crisis. 

Show your support for these charities by getting your friends together for a great night out. Book your tickets by contacting the Mayor’s Office on 01323 415020 or emailing
