Devonshire Park Theatre

The Devonshire Park Theatre is a Grade II listed building designed by Henry Currey, built in 1884 and further improved by celebrated theatre architect Frank Matcham in 1903. It is one of the best examples of small Victorian Theatre in the country with ornate interior featuring decorative plaster work with scrolls and caryatids by Schmidt of Holloway.

Dubbed ‘the Playhouse in the Park’ the range of work presented at the Devonshire Park Theatre includes major touring productions by producers and theatre companies including Bill Kenwright, David Pugh, Kneehigh Theatre, The Watermill Theatre, Original Theatre Company and Blackeyed Theatre as well as working alongside local producers.

Eastbourne Theatres also produces its own pantomime, plays and musical productions at the Devonshire Park Theatre.

The venue has a seating capacity of 873.
