Exciting summer programme launched

Pirates, comedians, rockers, jazz stars, blues legends, breakthrough artists and a host of children’s shows and films…all these and more are on the bill at Shoreham’s top-quality arts venue this summer.

As the new programme shows, there are a stunning range of acts to entertain and inspire those living locally, and those traveling from further afield, between May and mid-September, kicking off with vocalist Stacey Kent on Saturday 4th May, and ending with a rowdy Ukulele Festival on Sunday 15th September.

Ropetackle’s reputation for drawing big names to the 200-seater venue was boosted this spring with the appearance of top comedians, Jack Dee, Alan Carr, Romesh Ranganathan and Suzi Ruffell, and it continues to attract household names as well as something different.

Check out our What’s On page now to see the full range of shows and book yourself and your family to see a fun day or night out now!
