The Stables Theatre and Arts Centre is housed in a fine 18th-century building in the heart of Hastings Old Town. The building opened as a theatre back in 1959 and has been developed further over the years, including a recent refurbishment to the foyer, new carpets throughout and new equipment for the lighting and sound box. They produce around twelve Stables’ shows every year, and the cast for these high quality amateur productions are all Stables’ members. The auditorium itself can seat up to 126 people and has access for wheelchairs.
The theatre also plays hosts to other local groups and professional shows, along with their art gallery that has a new exhibition every two months, showcasing the work of local and national artists. The Stables is run by volunteers.
