“Lovely Theatre”
Review of White Rock Theatre

White Rock Theatre
Ranked #18 of 68 things to do in Hastings
Attraction details
Reviewed 15 April 2013

We have seen several plays and pantomines at this Theatre situated opposite the beach, even on a dark, bleak wintry evening, the bright lights of the Theatre and glow from the bar was very welcoming. Friendly and helpful staff and bar prices not too steep. Comfy seats, well worth a visit especially for a panto or touring theatre production.

Although the theatre looks a bit tatty in places, the seating area in the theatre was quite comfy. The restaurant area upstairs could do with smartening up though, the carpet is very stained and dirty looking, but the food was fine and waitresses were very friendly.

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.

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.

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.
