Eastbourne Theatre Ambassadors

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. We currently have 8 ambassadors and recruit annually in summertime.

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.

The reviews we receive from this group are posted on this website and through our EBTheatres social media feeds on both Facebook and Twitter. 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 Eastbourne Theatres ambassador we would love to hear from you! Please contact us on theatresmarketing@eastbourne.gov.uk and we will send you an application form to complete. 

Here's what our current 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,Current 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, Current Ambassador
