Theatres Trust Conference 2019

I enjoyed being one of the speakers at this year's Theatres Trust Conference. I spoke about the refurbishment of the Congress Theatre in Eastbourne, part of our work at Devonshire Park, where we have improved the whole audience experience and quality of production presentation. I also discussed how our new Welcome Building allows the wider site to be more accessible and inclusive, notwithstanding the sensitive historic context. It provides access to all levels of the Congress Theatre, links it to the Grade II listed Winter Garden and also includes two new large multipurpose venues.
