A Year At The Helm Of The Waterfront


In January 2019, The Waterfront unveiled its inaugural 2019 summer events programme for The Waterfront. From a pop up food market to a children’s urban beach, live music acts and an outdoor cinema experience, the exciting and diverse range of attractions and activities made the marina a hive of activity throughout the year as the events programme ran right through until December with Sovereign Shines and a Christmas market. 

The finale event was Sovereign Shines on 13th December, which raised £350 for the local RNLI lifeboat; a national charity that saves lives at sea. The free family event, organised by Premier Marinas, The Waterfront tenants and the Sovereign Harbour Berth Holders’ Association was to celebrate the illuminations created by light displays on boats and houses in the harbour.

Daniel Heckford, Marina Manager added: “Sovereign Shines is all about raising much needed funds for the Eastbourne RNLI lifeboat. The evening event came together to celebrate the illuminations and allowed us to engage with our berth holders and the wider harbour community as we invited them all to get involved in the light festivities at Christmas”.
