Aldeburgh Beach

The Bandstand on the Beach features an eclectic mix of performers from across the musical spectrum. You’ll find everything from folk groups to local community choirs, swing bands, school groups, big bands, jazz singers, and classical ensembles.

This year we invite schools, amateur and professional performers from across Suffolk to apply to perform.

Acts can vary in length to suit the ensemble performing, usually lasting around 30 minutes. Digital keyboard, amplification and electrical output are available for performers, alongside limited music stands and seating. The closing date for applications is Friday 15 March. We will be in touch regarding your application by Friday 19 April.
