Admission Adults £10.00, Children Free (16 and under) Directions to our venue...The Milligan Theatre, Rye College, Love Lane, Rye, East Sussex, TN31 7NQ If using SatNav, it will almost certainly bring you down a tiny little one way road called Deadman’s Lane. Do not go down this in anything larger than a car as it is too narrow. The easier route is to go into the town past the railway station and following through the town one way system, turning left at a mini-roundabout to go down Rope Walk into the Grove Lane and Love Lane. Beware the very tight bend at the mini roundabout into Rope Walk. Note, if approaching from the north east on the A268 or the East of the A259, you cannot drive directly into town, you have to either follow the A259 around the edge and then enter from a roundabout at the west end, or use Deadman’s Lane, which is fine by car, but be aware of the metal railings on the left hand side.
We hope you will be able to join us at some of our upcoming shows
