LETTER: Eastbourne is so lucky to have the Hippodrome

Further to Mike Lees’ letter ( August 22) I made a special trip from London to attend the matinee performance of There’s Magic In The Musicat the Royal Hippodrome and was not disappointed. A cast of 30 presented a colourful and thoroughly entertaining show with musical tributes ranging from the Andrews Sisters to the Jersey Boys, in other words something for everyone.

Eastbourne is so lucky to have this beautiful theatre and I hope that local people will go and see this excellent production and help keep the tradition of summer variety alive.
