Eagles Round up: Posters, Eaglets and Kennett Style.
Get the Edward Kennett style
The Eastbourne Speedway message will be getting out more and more across Eastbourne and surrounding areas in the next few weeks.
Posters have been created, including digital versions for use in major, regional shopping centres.
In Shopping Centres
The Fineprint Eagles message will be beamed out to shoppers in The Beacon, in Eastbourne town centre, which is a retail magnet for people from miles around, as well as the hundreds of thousands of holidaymakers who stay in the resort every year.
The Beacon (formerly known as the Arndale) has been massively extended and Eastbourne Speedway have taken space on one of the centre’s digital displays.
Digital posters will also be displayed in Brighton’s hugely popular Churchill Square Shopping Centre and in the vibrant Priory Meadow Shopping Centre, Hastings.
These posters will appear next month (May) to coincide with a busy run of home meetings at Arlington Stadium.
On Poster Sites
Coastline Posters, which is based not far from the stadium at Seaford, will also be putting up posters in Hastings and then westwards along the coast to Newhaven and on to Brighton, Hove and Shoreham.
Some of these posters will be “double crown” which is 508 x 762mm (20 by 30ins).
Coastline Posters are another sponsor which has returned to support the new era Eagles.
Tourist Information Centre
Eastbourne Speedway posters will also be displayed on the windows of the town’s tourist information centre (TIC) and on an inside display too.
The TIC will also have leaflets to hand out as the resort fully gears up for the summer season.
And, you too can help spread the message.
We now have a poster section on our website which you can download and display in any suitable place – your local chip shop, school, workplace, takeaway or even in your car window.
It’s a great opportunity for you to help us make Eastbourne a “speedway town” once again and Sussex as a whole a speedway hotbed. Click here to go to the Downloads page
