Eastbourne's Devonshire Park Theatre is a Grade II listed building designed by Henry Currey.
It was built in 1884 and further improved by celebrated Theatre Architect Frank Matcham in 1903. It is one of the best examples of small Victorian Theatre in the country with ornate interior featuring decorative plaster work with scrolls and caryatids by Schmidt of Holloway.
The theatre usually hosts week-long shows, both touring productions, amateur performances and professional in-house produced shows. The venue truly comes alive at Christmas with the annual pantomime – this year will be Aladdin starring Shaun Williamson (EastEnders, Extras)
Seating capacity of 936
Did you know…. During routine maintenance at the back of the stalls a secret room was uncovered; it was a cellar for the old ‘Pit Bar’ and it contained an old metal bath, a Victorian bedstead, beer signs and tray.
