This beautiful Victorian theatre, built in 1883 as the New Theatre Royal and Opera House, was refurbished in 1904 and renamed The Royal Hippodrome Theatre giving holidaymakers the opportunity to revel in its Music Hall and Variety show traditions, which are still going strong here today. Being the oldest theatre in town it has seen many famous performers walk its boards, with the likes of Harry Houdini (who at the time made a sensational escape from Eastbourne’s police cells), Harry Secombe, Ken Dodd, Bruce Forsythe and a plethora of well-known theatrical personalities playing here over its 130 years. During WWII the theatre was closed as it sat in what was at the time called ‘Hellfire Corner’, where German bombs caused devastation but amazingly the theatre survived with only the loss of some of its original ornate plaster mouldings. Steeped in so much theatrical history it’s not surprising that spirits don’t want to leave its euphoric atmosphere and more than one ghost is said to haunt the building.
