“culture doesn't come better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

piano recitals, ballet and opera were all on offer, sadly not when we stayed here in Hastings! This theatre is a brand spanking new place with some excellent things going on. Right opposite the sea front so very easy to find.

“Shocked”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

We live in same town as this theatre and as there is a booking fee when getting tickets over the phone or on line, we have always taken the cash and purchased tickets personally at the box office. We go to town on a regular basis so this is no big deal and a nice walk along the prom is a bonus. I went in a few days ago to purchase 2 tickets with cash and was told that there is now a booking fee on this way of paying !! I was told that this is now standard practice countrywide but was angry non the less. The theatre is really nice and we have enjoyed may a performance and expect we will continue to do so but still surprised at paying a booking fee when personally calling in to the theatre with cash. We will now only go when we are desperate to see something and not just for a casual evening out and must admit that there is very little on that we would be desperate to see.

“Enjoyable evening entertainment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

A lovely old theatre which has been maintained in wonderful condition. The White Rock is located right on the oceanfront with ample underground parking directly across the road. We enjoyed a Christms time Panto which was well done with a professional cast and scenery/costumes. Very enjoyable.

“Dreamboats, Petticoats & smiles!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

Visited for my birthday during a run of Dreamboats & Petticoats - Found the venue spacious & friendly, perhaps in need of a slight revamp as looks a bit dated compared to other theatres.

Great for a night out to catch some culture. :D

“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

They've always got brilliant shows on here- all sorts, from pantomimes (Puss in Boots) to musicals (CATS) to shows where two hunky Australian men get naked and play with their D**k's.
