The Eastbourne Gazette, commonly known as just The Gazette, is a weekly tabloid newspaper, printed on Wednesdays and published since 1859 in Eastbourne, England.[1]


The Gazette was the town's first newspaper. Nowadays, the paper is edited and created by Beckett Newspapers, based in Eastbourne, and printed by Johnston Press at their headquarters in Hilsea, Portsmouth. Aleister Crowley once edited a chess column for the paper. The Gazette was the newspaper that the fictional Private Cheeseman from Dad's Army was a correspondent for.[2]

Sister newspaper[edit]

The Gazette also has a sister newspaper, owned by Beckett Newspapers, called the Eastbourne Herald. The Herald is printed on a Friday and is more expensive than the Gazette. Eastbourne is one of the few remaining towns in the UK which has a midweek paid-for newspaper as well as an end-of-week title.
