Hurst Players

The Hurstpierpoint Players have been consistently busy over the years, always looking forward to the next challenge. Nowadays the company conducts an average of four productions a year, spanning the full range of theatrical styles. In addition to the usual comedies and dramas, The Players have also produced cabarets, musicals, evenings of one-act plays, and more. One of the more daring ventures took place in 1999, when a three-day, non-stop Shakespeare marathon was organised to raise funds for repairs to the theatre building. The feat was repeated again in 2017. Guest readers in this extraordinary endeavour have included Des Lynam, Jimmy Hill, Greta Scacchi, Alan Leith, and Gwyneth Powell!

Our historic theatre is located in the delightful West Sussex village of Hurstpierpoint, about 10 miles north of Brighton. You’ll find us at the east end of the High Street, opposite South Avenue.
