Hastings White Rock Theatre

    The White Rock Theatre is a 1,066 seated venue (1,670 standing) in Hastings and is home to some of the best live music and entertainment in East Sussex.

    Originally the ‘East Sussex Hospital’, the building was replaced with the White Rock Pavilion which was opened by Edward, Prince of Wales in April 1927. It was built for the Hastings Municipal Orchestra. The pavilion underwent a further re-modification in 1937 and again in 1985 when it was renamed the White Rock Theatre.

    Situated in a commanding position on the Hastings shoreline the White Rock Theatre is the perfect concert and theatre venue, with a recently-refurbished, sea-view Café Bar. The Theatre’s programme is varied and includes one night concerts, musicals, drama and an annual pantomime.

    The ideal venue for meetings, rehearsals, workshops, conferences, parties, celebrations and more, the White Rock Theatre offers a range of spaces that can be adapted to suit your requirements, from one-to-one meetings to large seminars and birthday celebrations to community events.

    The Sussex Hall encompasses a multi-functional and versatile space equipped with sound and lighting, a large area for projection, fully licenced bar and sprung dance floor. The Sussex Studio is the idea venue to hold your conference, celebration rehearsal or performance.

    The White Rock Theatre is owned by the Hastings Borough Council and managed by HQ Theatres & Hospitality, the UK’s second largest theatre operator. HQ Theatres parent company is Qdos Entertainment one of the UK’s biggest, broad-based entertainment groups in the UK
