The Grove Theatre, Eastbourne's newest arts and community venue, is reopening to the public with a programme of socially-distanced performances for the rest of 2020.

Safety measures include reducing venue capacity, online ticket purchasing only (to limit contact and enable track and trace), hands-free hand sanitizer stations, one-way systems and table service for drinks.

Artistic Director Steve Scott said, "this is good news for the South East. We are delighted to be able to offer the public an exciting programme of events with something for all.

"Highlights include a brand-new show from Cabaret Cerises, a Halloween screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the Christmas classic It's a Wonderful Life presented as a live 1940s-style radio play."
