The Stables Theatre and Arts Centre is housed in a fine 18th-century building in the heart of Hastings' Old Town. It opened as a theatre in 1959. The building has been further developed over the years, and we are now able to offer a modern, raked auditiorium of 126 seats, accessible to everyone. We produce about ten Stables productions each year-amateur productions of the highest quality. These are cast from among the members of the theatre. We aim to provide a wide variety of productions, suiting the diversity of our audience. We also play host several other local groups and receive touring professional productions. The art gallery puts on a new exhibition each month, including the work of local artists and work from further afield. On stage, backstage, front of house and in the art gallery, the Stables is run entirely by volunteers.
