The Guildhall Trust reveals 2024 programme and plans for The White Rock

The Guildhall Trust has unveiled its new programme and plans for The White Rock Theatre since becoming the venue’s new operator on 1 February 2024.

It said it will be developing the programme it offers, building community partnerships, and increasing engagement with schools, young people and the creative sector.

It also wants to present the best live entertainment in East Sussex and plans to introduce a broader programme of live music and shows, while developing The Sussex Studio into an intimate performance space with its own unique programme of music, comedy, drama, dance and family theatre. It also plans to introduce new events including a Games Fest in 2024 and deliver a wider Get Involved programme of activities for the community, while further investing in the building itself.

Dance Live! comes to Hastings

The Guildhall Trust will also be introducing Dance Live!, the school and college dance event that is taking the country by storm, and is excited to announce a brand-new pantomime for 2024 – more details of which will be announced soon.

Included in the 2024 line-up are the comedians John Bishop, Al Murray, Ben Elton, Chris Moyles 90s Hangover, Jimmy Carr, Jo Brand and Frank Skinner; live music such as Jools Holland and the London African Gospel Choir; and dancing at the Silent Disco.

Nadine Passley, Venue Director, said: “We are really excited for the future of the White Rock! The Guildhall Trust’s vision and values resonate with what we have already been achieving with our Youth Theatre and community programme so we can’t wait to see how this is expanded. The Trust has exciting plans for the venue in terms of how it wants to develop the programme, the studio space and new events it wants to bring to Hastings, including Dance Live! and a Games Fest.”
