Every year since 2015 (with the exception of 2020) The Pasadena Roof Orchestra have hosted a weekend in the magnificent surroundings of the Grand Hotel, Eastbourne. Enjoy some of the finest music from the 1920s and 1930s played in the unmistakable style of the orchestra. There are lots of activities to enjoy during the day, and a wealth of good food and music to be experienced on both evenings.
The Pasadena Roof Orchestra was founded by John Arthy in 1969 and continues to tour the world to this day, successfully appearing at major concert houses in London, New York, Dubai, Berlin, Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur and have recorded more than 40 albums, provided music for films and even appeared at Buckingham Palace.
