Time to choose what to see this Autumn at Eastbourne Theatres


The new Eastbourne Theatre brochure for autumn is now available and it’s packed with a huge selection of shows for all ages, from comedy to high culture and whodunnits to family shows there’s plenty of choice!

With so much on offer the staff have made their top tips for their must see shows this autumn. Justine the Theatres Administrator and Jane the Finance Officer have already booked their tickets to see Brian May and Kerry Ellis (22 December) which is the final show at the Congress ahead of the refurbishment of the venue.

Other Congress shows that have piqued the attention of staff include: Marketing Officer Cat who is looking forward to seeing Richard O’Brien’s Rocky Horror Show (19- 24 September) - “I’ve never seen it before and I’m wondering if Eastbourne is going to be up for dressing up!”

While Front of House Manager Natalie has tickets for comedian Romesh Ranganathan (5 October).

Facility Officer Lee is keen on All of Nothing the Mod Musical (5 – 7 September) - based on the life and music of the Small Faces.

Devonshire Park offerings which are of interest include the Jonathan Maitland drama Dead Sheep (8 – 12 November) based on the true story behind Margaret Thatcher’s downfall which Theatre General Manager Gavin is looking forward to.

Facility Officer Ian can’t wait to see An Evening with Victor Meldrew (20 November) - “He’s a great British Institution is he not?”, said Ian.

Press Officer Aimee is booking for Frankenstein (17 – 19 November) - “The producers did a fantastic version of Dracula, I’m looking forward to seeing how they do this gothic chiller!”

Box Office Supervisor Suzanne is choosing Stephanie Beacham in A Princess Undone (1 – 5 November).

Theatres Artistic Director Chris is very excited about the pantomime Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (9 December–15 January) - which is just as well as he is both writing and directing it again following last year’s smash-hit, Peter Pan.

The Congress Theatre will be closing to the public from 22 December for a period of 18 months as it undergoes a refurbishment as part of the Devonshire Park redevelopment, the Devonshire Park Theatre will remain open throughout this period and the Winter Garden will also present additional productions.
