Devonshire Park Theatre
With its wonderfully ornate interior, Devonshire Park Theatre is one of the best examples of small Victorian theatre in the country.
The Devonshire Park Theare was built in 1884, named after the seventh Duke of Devonshire, who owned considerable lands in Eastbourne, and designed by the architect Henry Currey. Further improvements followed in 1903 by celebrated theatre architect Frank Matcham who also designed the London Coliseum and Buxton Opera House.
The Devonshire Park Theatre offers an intimate setting for your conference or event, with a seated capacity of 866.
As part of the Devonshire Quarter redevelopment, the theatre has undergone internal and exterior refurbishments, including structural repairs to the tower, repairs to the roof, windows and doors, heating improvements and full redecoration. This work was completed in December 2016, making the visiting experience even better for theatre-goers.
