Do you hear the people sing? Ashdown Park lifts the curtain on Les Misérables in an evening of musical magic

This August, Ashdown Park Hotel in East Sussex will be transformed into a London theatre stage as it welcomes industry titans Too Darn Hot for a night of Les Misérables and the wonderful West End.

The musical event, which is back by popular demand following on from last year’s Phantom of the Opera-themed event, will take place on Monday 28 August at 7pm.

Guests will be transported to the streets of 19th-century France as they hear the world-class performers belting out some of the musicals best-loved hits including the heart-wrenching ‘I Dreamed a Dream’, the rousing ‘Do You Hear the People Sing’ and the ever-comical ‘Master of the House’.

Alongside hits from the critically acclaimed show, Too Darn Hot will also be performing a variety of much-loved West End hits from classic shows including My Fair Lady, Kiss Me Kate, Cats, Singing in the Rain, Westside Story, Top Hat and 42nd Street.


Too Darn Hot are regular guests at Ashdown Park and their impeccable combined experience in the world of musical theatre speaks for itself. Members of the show band have performed around the world throughout their careers and credits include roles in West End performances of Phantom of the Opera, Les Misérables, Westside Story, A Chorus Line, Evita, Joseph, Grease, Fame, Top Hat, Singing in the Rain, The Rat Pack, Mamma Mia and Chicago.

Musical director of Too Darn Hot Tansy Aked said: “I am thrilled to be returning to Ashdown Park Hotel this summer with my West End show band Too Darn Hot. Ashdown Park Hotel is one of my favourite venues as the dramatic setting of the chapel and its stunning acoustics make it an absolute joy to perform in. We first played at Ashdown Park in 2010 and our sell-out shows at the hotel are always a highlight of our year.”

Before the performance begins, guests will enjoy a welcome drink and a selection of canapés followed by a sumptuous three-course meal in the hotel’s stunning converted chapel, complete with wine, coffee and petits fours. Dishes include smoked salmon ballotine to start, slow-poached beef fillet for main and millionaire’s shortbread dome for dessert.

Tickets to the theatrical event cost £99.50 per person including welcome drink and canapés reception, three-course meal and live performance.For those wishing to make the most of their visit, a special accommodation rate is available to all those attending the event.
