Eastbourne theatre takes its festive show online due to Tier 4 changes
An Eastbourne theatre has moved its Christmas show online because of new Covid restrictions on the way.
The Christmas Show at the Royal Hippodrome Theatre has now moved online until January 3 due to Eastbourne moving into Tier 4 restrictions from Boxing Day.
A spokesperson for the theatre said, “The announcement that Sussex will enter Tier 4 from Boxing Day means that it may be a while until we can safely welcome you back to the theatre in person once more.
“After having to cancel the rest of the live performances of The Christmas Show, we have taken the show online. Having survived everything that 2020 has thrown at us, we are so pleased to be able to bring some festive fun to you at home.”
Households can watch the show for £12.
The spokesperson said, “We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support throughout 2020, theatre fans are the lifeblood of our creative industry and we simply could not open our doors without your support.
“We wish you a safe and happy Christmas and we look forward to a brighter 2021 for everyone.”
