Coronavirus: Suspended performances at Hastings White Rock Theatre

Updated: 25 March 2020, 1.40pm

As a result of recent Government guidance discouraging mass gatherings – events and performances at Hastings White Rock that were scheduled to take place before Sunday 26 April 2020 have been suspended. Some shows beyond this date may also be subject to suspension or rescheduling.

The White Rock Theatre building and box office are temporarily closed.  

Advice for Ticket Holders

We are working to reschedule as many of the affected performances as we can. Inevitably this will not be possible for all events - and some shows will not be rescheduled.

Performances where a decision has been made are listed below. We will be updating this list regularly – so please check back if an event for which you hold tickets is not yet included.

These procedures apply for all bookings made direct with the venue. If you booked through a third party agency (Ticketmaster, See Tickets) please contact them directly.

I want to help support Hastings White Rock Theatre  – how can I do that?

The best way to do this is by waiving your right to reimbursement. If you wish to do this you should complete the request form and choose the ‘donate my voucher’ option. No voucher will be issued to you and the money you have already paid will be donated to Hastings White Rock to help us through these challenging times.

My show has been rescheduled to a new date – what should I do?

The new dates for performances that have been rescheduled so far are listed above.

  • If you are able to attend on the new date your original tickets will remain valid. You do not need to take any action.
