“The Grove team have installed a range of social distancing measures to ensure the safety of its patrons. These include reduced venue capacity, online ticket purchasing only to limit contact and enable track and trace, hands-free hand sanitiser stations, one-way systems and table service for drinks.

“This is good news for Eastbourne. We are delighted to be able to offer the public an exciting programme of events, with something for all.”

“Highlights include a brand-new show from Cabaret Cerises, a Halloween screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and the Christmas classic It’s A Wonderful Life presented as a live 1940s style radio play.”
