The UGT Open Stage Nights

Thursdays: 9th February & 13th April at 7.30pm. Venue & bar opens at 7pm



Eastbourne’s got talent, so join us for a night of fun and laughter. The stage is yours and with the backing of great sound and lighting you can delight our audience. Whatever your talent – be it singing, reciting, comedy, dancing or musical prowess – why not take to the stage. Backing tracks are accepted.

If you do want to show off your skills onstage, get there as early as possible – and make sure you give the organisers your name to put on the running order board.

The UGT welcomes musicians of any genre – and several who’ve turned up to perform at the previous Open Stage nights have immediately been recruited to sing and play at one of the theatre’s weekly Saturday music mornings.

But equally welcome at Open Stage Nights are impressionists, poets, comedians, magicians, and more. Anyone, in fact, with a talent to entertain.

The only rule is they mustn’t outstay their welcome! Which is usually between eight and ten minutes, but can be as low as three!

The evening will last up to for three hours including a few short intervals and, if past experience is any guide, everyone wanting to take part will have an opportunity to appear on stage with top-class lighting and sound systems and in front of a listening audience that is astoundingly sympathetic.

The cafe-bar will be open through out. As usual the Theatre will be set out in comfortable club-style, with the much loved circular tables.

Be prepared to be entertained, moved and surprised by the unexpected.

Entrance is free. Donations always welcome.

Thursdays: 9th February & 13th April at 7.30pm. Venue & bar opens at 7pm

With regret there is no wheelchair access to the venue. A hearing loop is available.
