Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beautiful little theatre to see a show, or, if you are staying on Hayling long term, to get involved in putting on performances. There's easy parking with disabled access, and a compact auditorium with comfy tiered seating that gives everyone a great view. Ticket prices are very reasonable, with a nice, modern online booking system that makes everything simple. Great range of things to see there too, from plays to musicals, comedies, pantos, and films too.

Having just moved to Hayling Island, my wife and I decided to visit the theatre. As well as regular dramatic productions, there is a monthly cinema club where current release films are shown. This is what we attended, and thoroughly enjoyed the friendly atmosphere. The theatre only holds about 144 people which adds to the intimacy. We have already booked our next visit to see a Hayling Island Dramatic Society production.

We enjoy trips to the theatre. Very enthusiastic helpers and volunteers all help to make the visit enjoyable. Quite a small theatre, but it has a good sound. All the shows we have seen here have been most enjoyable and we keep on coming back.
Pantos are great fun.
Drinks served in foyer.

Attended a show called Benny Manhattan and the Capote Diamond. Very funny show and so well put together. The venue is small but full of history and full of great staff. I would highly recommend a visit.

Not our first visit to the station theatre, although it is a small theatre no matter where you sit the view and sound is excellent. We have seen a few HIADS productions and have never been disappointed, the hard work from backstage to front of house shines through at every visit. Film nights, reasonably priced tickets, but sad no interval for ice cream or a drink. If your visiting the island be sure to look to see what's on and book tickets you won't be disappointed.
