History

The White Rock Theatre has 1,066 seats and stages some of the best live music and entertainment in East Sussex.

It was originally the East Sussex Hospital and it was replaced with the White Rock Pavilion (as it was then called).  It was opened by Edward, Prince of Wales in April 1927.   Because of the superb acoustics, the White Rock was for many years a favourite recording studio for Decca Record Label. 

The building design is an attractive Spanish Colonial style by C Cowles-Voysey and HS Morgan.   

The Theatre is situated along the Hastings seafront and is a perfect concert and theatre venue, with a sea-view Café Bar.  The Theatre’s programme is varied and includes concerts, musicals, drama, comedy and pantomimes.

The venue can also cater for meetings, rehearsals, workshops, conferences, party celebrations as the venue can be adapted to suit requirements.

The Sussex Hall has a multi-functional space equipped with sound and lighting, a large area for projection, fully licensed bar and sprung dance floor.  The Sussex Hall is a great venue to hold a conference, celebration or performance.

The White Rock Theatre is owned by Hastings Borough Council and managed by HQ Theatres & Hospitality.
