The RWA relies solely upon donations and the money made from our fundraising events to be able to exist. 

Please support any of our concerts you can, and do please tell your friends about them as well.

During the course of the year, we host a wide variety of shows which should appeal to most tastes, featuring professional musicians plus

sometimes our own students. All shows are held at The Milligan Theatre, Rye College, Love Lane, Rye, East Sussex, TN31 7NQ.

Our Next Events

2018 Friday 29th June at 7.15pm Young Organist of the Year Entrants and Song Another of our popular regular events, we feature our young organists who are soon to enter the ATOS UK Young Theatre Organist of the Year Competition, this year being held in Bristol.  To make the evening go along with extra style we also welcome special guest singers from Adapt Theatre. Friday 14th September at 7.15pm The Rye Proms Night Back by popular demand, The Rye Bay Crew, with Michael Wooldridge at the Wurlitzer, bring us an evening packed with the excitement of the Proms, including the traditional rousing finale for everyone to join in and sing. Friday 12th October at 7.15pm Jazz Night with the one and only Liane Carroll With a Fish and Chip Supper The return of sensational International Jazz Singer Liane Carroll, with Michael Wooldridge at the Rye Wurlitzer Friday 14th December at 7.15pm The Christmas Show The RWA’s Very Special Christmas Show with Festive Fayre   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 (slightly) 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
