Sadly closed indefinitely at present, like other entertainment venues, but when it's open, it puts on some fantastic shows, great comedy and music, lovely bar and café, and a really welcoming atmosphere.

The seats are so close together. Everyone has to slant their knees... Like 1950s debutantes

We went to a concert at the International Piano Festival. Front of house staff were very welcoming. Our seats in the circle were very good with an excellent view of the piano keyboard and the orchestra. This was our first visit and we are looking forward to a second.

Brilliant concert last night with Rufus Wainwright and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Front row of the balcony affords you a great view of the stage. The staff, all of whom seem to be volunteers, are so friendly - great atmosphere. Reasonably priced refreshments too. The theatre itself could do with a little TLC and a few extra toilets - the queue for the ladies was immense!! Would have ben great to have been able to get food here - but we understood that this is temporarily unavailable.

First visit to the White Rock Theatre, Hastings and was not disappointed. Very well lit up from the outside, welcomed by friendly and pleasant staff and served an excellent café. Stalls seats very well positioned with good leg room, great view and sound which provided a great atmosphere. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

We saw Led Zepplin tribute band CODA, who were absolutely brilliant, mesmerising and perfectly humerus. Don’t miss theses if you get a chance to see them it’s well worth it.
The venue was cold though, which was the only downfall and I’m not sure if that was because they were expecting a lot of dancing.
The white rock staff were very pleasant and helpful, thank you.

View from back of ground floor is really good as floor is now flat, increased legroom too. Sounds of the 70s with Johnny Walker was a great night.

Intimate feel from a 'quite large' theatre - this from a rock concert. Decent view, good comfort through whole performance - which matters after 2 hours - and helpful staff

Great place have visited here a few times for shows. I have one booked for march, always a good night :) the only thing that lets it down is the vat downstairs, it gets Ramo and you have to push and shove your way to the bar. I feel them expanding the bar area would work a treat!
