Eastbourne Skate Lessons Beginners Hampden Park Saturday 4pm

Skate Lessons move indoors this week, with a double opportunity for a Beginners and General skating class.

Eastbourne Skate Festival Skate Games and Lessons

First up is the Saturday 4pm lesson – you NEED to book in as space is limited and you can book here.

Alternatively book the Sunday at 9am with Vonnie.

In either case Booking is essential because of limited space. Priority is given to those that book, so we’d advise booking, rather than just turning up.

Costs are £8 adult, £5 Child and £2 skate hire. If you book the Saturday the Roller Disco is on straight after :)


Eastbourne Roller Disco Hampden Park coming soon!

Eastbourne’s first roller disco is back again from its summer break soon! Featuring some new additions to the all adult skate guard team and all your favourite games, as well as roller basketball and several Roller Birthday parties during the Saturday night.

The fun starts at 5:30pm Saturday 13th September – get there early to beat the skate hire queue!

For the moment Skate Lessons will continue outdoors, but they will be coming indoors, just before the Roller Disco in October – along with the Newbourne Roller Derby Junior squad!
