The Regeneration of Bognor Regis’s Theatre

At last culture for Bognor Regis and surrounding areas with a theatre, concert and music venue, for those evenings out with friends or family.

The proposal for the Theatre Complex includes the flexibility of sizes from intimate audiences ranging from 200 seats all the way up to 1100 for much larger productions and concerts, attracting a wide variety of entertainment ranging from music concerts to large theatre productions and providing the opportunity for local amateur dramatic groups to utilise the theatre for their own productions!

Attracting internationally recognised artists from comedy, entertainment, rock, pop, jazz and classical…..the possibilities are endless if you have the right facilities!

The extensive exhibition & conference facilities will be of great benefit to local businesses  and larger corporate businesses further afield.

The opportunities this Theatre presents to Chichester University (Bognor Campus) in supporting their students’ theatrical and stage & theatre management courses would have a huge impact and offer an excellent attraction to students from outside the area, bringing in further outside income for Bognor Regis.

Tourism opportunities will increase, local travel agents can offer ‘Theatre Weekend Breaks’, again in turn increasing the visitors and revenue to our town.

Please leave your feedback in our comments section, telling us what shows, acts, artists you would love to see come to your town!

More Information on the Theatre Development

We are currently awaiting a decision from Arun District Council – please let them know how much you want this regeneration application to become reality via our comments section!
Opportunities for music artists and bands to perform concerts, stage productions, children’s shows, opera, plays, classical concerts, conference facilities, exhibition room.
Why shouldn’t we? The current Alexandra Theatre has served its purpose but cannot offer the size of productions a new Theatre with a fly tower can bring to Bognor Regis. It will attract outside tourism to the area that the current theatre does not, for evening entertainment and weekend breaks.
Apart from performances, there will be a restaurant and bar facilities for the enjoyment of patrons.
Attracting outside tourism, boosting local economy and in turn increasing footfall and revenue to Bognor Regis.
Future full and part time employment and career opportunities in stage management, theatre management, assistants, cleaners, lighting engineers, special effects and visual designers, stage design, Conference & Banqueting management, catering opportunities, hotel workers, plus all the construction work. The theatre it self’s outstanding design will enhance the town’s image. This will give Bognor Regis the ability to host major music acts and performers.
The hotel will have 48 bedrooms, attractively designed for the comfort of guests.

I viewed the sir Richard Hotham Project exhibition which was both visionary and inspirational. This planning application far exceeds anything I have seen to date for Bognor Regis and I find it hard to imagine a better one.10/10
