Friendly staff. Ideal for children. Smeds and the Smoos Very enjoyable and well performed. Just a shame there wasn't a better attendance. Maybe better advertising! A good first theatre visit for our grandson. Just long enough.

The Devonshire Park Theatre is well worth a visit. Built in 1884 it is a little gem of a Theatre. Take time to look and find out what is on and I'm sure you will enjoy a night at theatre.

Went to see hound of the baskervilles. Not the traditional sherlock Holmes we were expecting but a version by 3 very talented and funny actors.
With a minimum of props and numerous costume changes they had the audience laughing from beginning to end.
Loved it.

The Devonshire is a very pleasant theatre, with a good selection of plays during the season, I find myself going to a play there every one to two months. The staff are always polite and friendly. It's an "old world" style theatre, but very well kept, to put it in perspective I have seen it used as a location in one of the episodes of the Poirot TV series. It is a small theatre and the seating is a bit cramped, you can feel like being a tinned sardine if it is a full audience. Despite that I always enjoy visiting the Devonshire, and, of course, the plays!

Out of the two prominent theatres I’ve been to in Eastbourne, Devonshire park excels at stunning architectural design and smaller but more refined plays. The comedy always seems to hit the mark, and the actors really capture the theatrical spirit of convincing the audience that they’re having a good time too, not just the crowd. There’s even benefit to seeing the same show more than once, as the staff are professionals and do a great job ad-libbing and improvising to compound the humour. Don’t sleep on this theatre, it will give you an incredible night out.

The play was excellent, however the so called background music was too loud. Then, when the music was played for the introduction of each scene the musical intro was VERY uncomfortable and VERY LOUD. This is the first time we have ever experienced this level of discomfort at the Devonshire Park Theatre and we have been going there for over 40 years. We do not want to go home feeling like we had just been to a rock concert and it distracts from the overall experience.

Lovely traditional theatre, lovingly looked after by the Friends of the Devonshire. Great variety of plays and shows, over the years we have seen some excellent productions some worthy of the west end but at much more affordable prices.

I’ve seen many pantos at Eastbourne over an 18 year period and for me, the ‘baddy’ and the fairy made the panto this year. Strong singers from all principle characters which in other years some have felt A little weak in their singing and acting and of course Tucker and Martyn added the usual slapstick fun. I really wouldn’t see any other panto despite living out of the area it’s so worth coming back for.

A classic Edwardian theatre offering many good plays, it's an Eastbourne gem.

My second time there and you cannot help being taken in by the historical nostalgia of the preserved architecture and because it's extremely popular it's worth getting there early as it gets packed! Loved Jack and the Beanstalk there.
