About The Izzard Theatre
The College’s new multi-million pound development is titled the Izzard Theatre in honour of Bexhill’s most famous son. Eddie Izzard followed the opening ceremony with a special performance to an audience of just 200 people.
Principal Karen Hucker said: ‘We are proud to name our new theatre after Eddie who is a role model both nationally and internationally as an entertainer and charity ambassador. Eddie has achieved great things in his career and has done so much for charitable causes. It seemed fitting that we honour his successes by naming our theatre after him.’
Eddie said: ‘I am very happy that this new theatre is opening in Bexhill. The fact that it is to be called the Izzard Theatre’ is completely amazing and bonkers at the same time. If my career ever goes backwards, the College has my permission to change the name to the ‘Blizzard Theatre’ and say it was named after Antarctic explorers.’
Eddie’s performance was followed the next day by the On An Ordinary Sunday gala show. The show featured Performing Arts students from Bexhill College accompanying West End stars. The standard of entertainment was exceptionally high all weekend and sets a precedent for future performances at the Izzard Theatre.
