A wet Wednesday in Eastbourne. Outside, the town is battered by a soaking onslaught on the eve of Airbourne. But inside the Congress Theatre, there is warmth, exuberant music, humour, dance and colour. Annie the Musical is in town.
A Noel Coward revival in sedate old Eastbourne, at the cosy Devonshire Park: a little too comfortable and undemanding? Don’t be deceived: A Song at Twilight is classic theatre, impeccably delivered by the finest actors in the business.
Room 101 may be the place for all your pet hates, but its BBC presenter, Nick Hancock, is on much happier ground when he brings the brand new play Octopus Soup to the Devonshire Park Theatre next week.
