Meanwhile In the Disco…


Occasionally we run our Neon 80’s or sometimes 90’s Roller Disco, which is always a popular session with kids for the dressing up and mums and dads for the music!img_20160924_161921939

We also have optional fancy dress sessions for other nights of the year, such as Christmas, Halloween and Valentines, Movie themes and more!

As well as these light hearted fancy dress moments, we run many fund raising skates for charities and good causes both indoors and out, through the year.

Other regulars are the half term and Easter Break Skates, featuring various skating activities with in our Roller Disco structure.

We run a huge “Skaters Treasure Hunt” each year and many other events.

The latest big project is the resurgence of the EASTBOURNE SKATE FESTIVAL as part of the Sports Festival in May. (See recent posts for details). We also run Skate Sessions through some Half Term Breaks.

Don’t forget we can cater for your special event as well, whether its a Roller Birthday Party or Hen Party, or something much bigger for an entire language school.

About SK8school and Eastbourne Roller Disco.

SK8school was founded in 2003 by Eastbourne skate enthusiast and instructor Tim Wheals. Our aim is to make skating as fun and accessible as possible so that everyone can share in the experience.

We run a program of lessons staffed with some of the most experienced and qualified Quad and Inline Instructors in East Sussex. Our senior instructor has the distinction of being the longest standing Inline instructor in Europe having qualified and taught since 1995.

We also run Roller Discos in partnership with the local Council. We started out in Cavendish Sports Centre nearly a decade ago before moving to Hampden Park then finally, in this last year, relocating to Eastbourne Sports Park where our Eastbourne Roller Disco provides skaters with the largest indoor skating area in the South.

Not only do we work with the Council providing roller discos, we also work with most of the local Primary Schools running After School Skate Clubs. This means our staff must have the necessary DBS checks, insurance and documentation and as such we are only permitted to have staff aged 18 or over working with us.

Behind the scenes you can also find us supporting and contributing to many charities and local groups in the form of galas, entertainment and prizes. In the recent Eastbourne Sports Festival to raise funds for the NSPCC we were proud to have been the main contributor to the final sum. However, when we run the show ourselves rather than simply contributing, we achieve even more… our last 2 major fund raisers for local causes brought in nearly £4,500!
