Whenever you are in Hayling you should check what performances are on at the local theatre, the productions are of a very good standard, have not seen a bad performance yet.

Warm and friendly venue. Always a nice welcome on the door from someone who is local and involved with the event.
Good priced bar and disabled access too.
We have attended many different events here and all have been very enjoyable.

Hayling owes much to its Station Theatre so called due to it being on the site of the original Hayling Billy rail line station. There is a loyal following for the many and varied productions which take place throughout the year but not just from the local community because the audiences travel from far and wide.
The productions are highly polished and great attention is paid by the back stage crew on making sure that props and scenery are as authentic as possible. The costumes are always superb and in keeping with the time period of the piece.
There is a growing group of young performers who present equally creditable performances and from time to time, present their own show.
The theatre itself is excellent with comfortable seating which allows for unrestricted views of the stage wherever the position.
In addition to the regular amateur productions, there are regular up-to-date film shows and occasional one off concerts by professional artists.
I have yet to come away from the theatre disappointed by the production I have seen which is more than I can say for some professional shows that I have paid the earth to sit through.
I strongly recommend a visit if you are visiting Hayling, even if it is just to call in for a coffee and a look round the lovely venue.
