Visiting The Grove Theatre Eastbourne
Our Box Office is open on Saturdays between 11am - 4pm. You can also stop for a drink in the bar.
Tickets are also available online through this website.
Doors open 30 minutes before showtime unless otherwise stated.
The safety of our visitors is of utmost importance to us and the following COVID safety measures are in place for your safety and comfort.
- External windows and doors opened where possible to allow a flow of air
- Hand sanitisers available throughout the venue
We continue to monitor the situation and will make any changes to these measures as mandated by the Government.
At the present time we regret there isn't an access point to and from the venue that a mobility impaired person can use unaided. Sadly, no thought was given to such provision when buildings like the Central Library, in which the theatre is located, were designed.
We have been looking for possible solutions from the outset. We are currently in discussion with East Sussex County Council regarding improving access at the venue which includes a full disability audit. In that cause, we have agreed with ESCC's Fire Officer from the Property Department that any individual wishing to visit the theatre must provide their own supporters/carers and must be able to evacuate in case of emergency. We can also arrange for them to have access to the building before our advertised door opening times for a given event. Please contact us in advance if you wish to make these arrangements.
We are grateful to The Chalk Cliff Trust for a generous donation to replace the flooring on our stairwells for improved colour contrast to aid visitors who are visually impaired.
We offer a complimentary ticket to any disabled individual for someone to go with them to attend an event at the Grove. We ask that you email us with the name of the event you wish to book for and your details.
