Royal Hippodrome Theatre – Eastbourne

Royal Hippodrome Theatre Eastbourne

Working with Eastbourne’s local history

The Royal Hippodrome Theatre in Eastbourne opened in 1883. In 2019 the building was in receipt of a £500,000 grant from a local CIC to refurbish both the exterior and interior of the building.

RHT came to us to commission a new logo and build a new and updated website. The core requirement of the site was to highlight the upcoming shows and be straightforward for users to navigate and book tickets for. This would be a streamlined, online system instead of customers visiting the theatre directly or calling over the phone.

In terms of design we wanted to embrace the historical significance of the building. We made sure elements from the architecture such as the ironworks, façade and rich internal colour schemes were used throughout the website where possible. This helped to tie everything together as much as possible.

One of the key new aspects of the website is the events facility enabling events to be found more easily. They are also categorised and now more easily accessed by the customer as well as the administrator populating the website.
