Oldest town inn begins new life as a theatre

EASTBOURNE'S oldest pub, The Lamb Inn, successfully launched itself as a new theatre and arts venue last Sunday.

Well known actors Louise Jameson and Colin Baker performed to a sell-out crowd in the function room above the pub on Sunday afternoon.

Colin said, "The room was full to bursting and the audience were very receptive and appreciative. I am delighted it went so well. I predict great things!"

Lamb Theatre organiser Steve Scott said, "We've been looking to launch The Lamb as Eastbourne's new arts venue for some time.

"Thanks to the invaluable support of owner Jim McRobert, we've well and truly started the ball rolling."
