Your Half Board Stay at our Accordion Festival

Accordion Festivals – Four days of music the way only accordion players know how! Our programmes include concerts by both UK and International leading musicians, (please see each festival details for specific artist list). There is, of course, a full supporting cast of traders and displays. Over ten hours of classes also run during each weekend. These include Orchestra’s, group and even individual private lessons. Music genres include Folk, Scottish, Jazz, Classical, Electronic and guests are more than welcome to bring their accordions along for both classes and to join in the afternoon guest concerts. Arrive Friday afternoon, leave Monday morning. Your stay includes Friday to Monday Dinner, Bed & Breakfast, all concerts, orchestra’s, teaching, trade stands, afternoon tea/coffee with biscuits/cakes.

Once your deposit has been paid we will contact you to confirm your room type (single, double or twin) and if there are any dietary or disability requirements etc. We will then send a confirmation letter with all booking details. If you have any questions, would like a printed booking form and flyer information or would prefer to book by phone, please give Colette a call on 07736273634 (after 5 pm is best weekdays).

Our Venue

The Queens Hotel, Eastbourne, Marine Parade, Eastbourne, East Sussex BN21 3DY is one of Eastbourne’s premier hotels. It has a wonderful position on the seafront opposite the pier. The venue has recently had some major upgrades which add to its comfortable atmosphere and this popular venue is always a favourite with our guests. The hotel is equipped with two lifts and parking is easy as the hotel has its own large carpark. If you fancy a break from the music local shopping is plentiful with some great stores just a short walk away.

Please note the following. All festival bookings must be made through CGF Music Ltd  (not the hotel) otherwise entry to the festival will be refused. We are fully aware that some people do not like to book via the internet and we welcome bookings by phone if this is the case. You should also be aware that for your protection we operate a ‘money back and nothing else to pay’ cancellation policy against death and severe illness. Weekend and day tickets are available for local residents although these need to be pre-booked due to the limited number of spaces available.
