The Grove Theatre, Eastbourne


The Grove Theatre, Eastbourne is now open for business!

The Grove Theatre is Eastbourne’s new arts space, offering a broad range of performances, exhibitions and activities for the benefit of the local community.

Louise Jameson, Shakespeares Mistress

Located on the corner of Grove Road, under Eastbourne Library, The Grove Theatre opened in December with a wonderful launch event and a production of the much-loved Christmas classic ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’.

From art exhibitions to first class drama productions, live music to coffee mornings, children’s theatre workshops, stage combat workshops, new writing events, arts and health initiatives, the Grove offers a wide range of activities to enjoy.

Clive St James as Tommy Cooper

Highlights of the forthcoming season include A Night Out With Tommy Cooper, featuring Guinness World Record holder Clive St James as Tommy Cooper; an evening of comic song with Flanders & Swann and Tom Lehrer; Shirley Valentine, the classic comedy by Willy Russell direct from the Hollywood Festival; A Few Good Men, the compelling courtroom drama known by many as the blockbuster film starring Tom Cruise (see image at top); Those Magnificent Men, a nail-biting, side-splitting true story of the first ever non-stop flight across the Atlantic by Alcock and Brown; and Louise Jameson: Shakespeare’s Mistress, in which Louise takes the audience from Shakespeare to soap and the National to stand-up, a life in performance.

Those Magificent Men

The Theatre’s Friends Scheme provides valuable support to the theatre through volunteering and special Friends events, offering discounts in the Redwood Bar and for tickets to all the shows. The theatre is home to and run by Redwood Productions Ltd.
