Eastbourne Theatre Ambassadors

Congress Theatre Auditorium

Eastbourne Theatres run a successful Ambassadors Scheme; Try Theatre made up of local theatre enthusiasts who write reviews and spread the word about shows coming to Eastbourne Theatres.

Launched in 2014, the scheme was set up to help spread the word about shows at the Congress and Devonshire Park Theatre as well as encouraging others to attend the theatre, to try something new or to try theatre again if they haven’t been for a while.

Excerpts from Ambassdor reviews are posted on this website and through our EBTheatres social media feeds on both Facebook and Twitter and occassionally submitted to local print and online publications. The Ambassadors also promote their reviews, the venues and the shows they’ve seen through their own blogs and social media channels.

If you are interested in becoming an ambassador for us, please keep an eye on our social media channels for the next round of recruitment. Recruitment for 2023-24 has now closed.

Here's what our ambassadors say about the scheme....

"The best thing about being an ambassador is being asked to review a show that I would not personally have chosen and which turns out to be an amazing experience!"

Sheila Allain - Eastbourne Theatre's Ambassador

"I've really enjoyed being part of the local theatre's 'family', seeing shows and writing reviews has made me think more deeply about what I am watching on stage"

Su Goss - Eastbourne Theatre's Ambassador
