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.
