Rang the White Rock at a last minute attempt to get tickets for Ricky Gervais hoping there would be some cancellations - there were! I was so lucky and got 2 tickets on the day. Very helpful staff. Thank you. My only gripe is the new seating downstairs - the raised seats should never have come out (in my opinion). We're not all 6'2"!
What a grand landmark in the Hastings and surrounding area. Showcasing amazing shows all year long! They don't just have fantastic shows but the staff are lovely too. They're always friendly and smiley faced who are efficient in their job. I love the White Rock and my star rating shows that!

I saw Slade at the Theatre. Hugely impressed with the venue. Right on my doorstep!
I absolutely love the fact that we have such a beautiful local theatre that has a diverse and high quality programme. I attended the Opera & Ballet International’s production of Puccini’s Tosca last night and feel so grateful that I can see top quality live entertainment on this scale in my home town. The orchestra and the vocalists were fantastic and the Gin wasn’t bad either. Thank you for continuing to entertain and stimulate.
I had a wonderful time at Mister Maker Live show .. I won family tickets on Best Of Hastings website and was so happy to be able to take my friends. I had a great spot for my wheelchair and the staff who work there are always so lovely! I sang along to all the music and laughed at all the funny bits. I had the biggest smile on my face throughout the show. The White Rock Theatre is one of my favourite places to go and Ithe shows are always so exciting! I like having a cup of tea in the cafe too. I'm looking forward to going again soon!
I attended the Hastings Music Festival Brass day yesterday and cannot praise the staff at the White Rock enough. The Box office staff were friendly and very helpful as I needed a few different tickets for the festival. The lovely Jan who was on the door controlling access did so enthusiasm and careful thought, ensuring the performers were not interrupted. He manner towards the children and their families was perfect. This beautiful building holds this event each year and does so very well indeed.

We booked Buddy and was really pleased with the very friendly and helpful approach from Tracey. We were even shown the very seats in the theatre to help accommodate our needs - fantastic service Thank you.
The White Rock Theatre is like a second home to me. I always feel welcome and the atmosphere is never anything below warm and open. I have performed here and worked here various times over the years and never have I had a problem. The theatre is alway's organised and communication is outstanding. Staff are friendly among customers and colleagues and I am yet to fault it. Without the love of this theatre over the years, I would not have discovered my true and undeniable passion for theatre and I wouldn't be where I am (or as happy as I am) today.
Best place to see the big names of entertainment in my local area. Have seen a few comedy shows here now and its always well planned out and easy to buy a pre& post show drink. will defiantly stick to this venue in the future.
The Theatre’s programme is varied and includes one night concerts, musicals, drama and an annual pantomime. I have been visiting the theatre since I was a child and I have always had a great experience. In the last few years, the theatre has become more popular and has been providing better quality performances as well as better use of the hire spaces. I personally love this venue and hope that it is continues to be successful in the future.
The White Rock Theatre is the beating heart of the town - always a hub of activity and pre-show excitement. A place where you can leave your troubles at the door and escape into theatre land, with the experience staying with you long after you leave your seat. A brilliant venue run with passion and dedication, and a place where I can always feel at home.
I love the White Rock Theatre for the variety of shows that it hosts. I have had my theatre experience broadened thanks to the diversity of their shows. I've attended things from "I'm sorry I haven't a clue" through to Circus of Horrors and everything in between. For less than a price of a night out on the town I can treat my partner to a wonderful evening in front of live entertainment. Plus I like telling my guests that the theatre has 1066 seats to coincide with the Battle of Hastings!
Amazing theatre! I watch my children perform on stage with St Pauls school every year and it's where my amazing fiancee proposed on the 13/09/15 during the most incredible Queen tribute act would definitely recommend the white Rock theatre amazing acts variety and fantastic staff
Great theatre, with great shows. I have not experienced customer service as good as The White Rock in any other south east theatre i have visited. Cafe has lovely views of the coast and soon to open pier.
