With over 200 people working daily on the Devonshire Quarter, the work to complete the once-in-a-generation transformation is moving ahead at great pace.
This £54 million transformation will put Eastbourne on the map as a top cultural, sporting and conference destination offering first class facilities for both residents and visitors. The Congress Theatre auditorium will have a 1680 seat renovation with new technical and temperature provision. The first major concert in the new Congress Theatre on 24 March will bring the acclaimed London Philharmonic Orchestra back to Eastbourne and is already completely sold out.
The Welcome Building and superb conferencing facilities are nearly complete and outside the groundwork on the new public plaza and ramped access is well underway. Part of the development includes new Exhibition Halls linked to auditorium spaces and new café overlooking grass courts.
