Saw Omid Djallili and had a great night here. The staff were good, upgrading our tickets so we were moved to the second row. The theatre is a comfortable venue with lots of atmosphere. Toilets and snack bar were all good and prices reasonable. Had a great evening and Omid and Boothby Graffoe were really funny.

Went to see this pantomime 30th December 6pm. The cast really sparkled - everyone who took part looked like they were having an amazing time - the dancers were fab, there was lots of high energy - the whole cast were spectacular. Had us singing away. Special mention must go to Matt Burridge who played Flesh Creep this evening -... More

Really enjoyed the jack in the beanstalk panto production. This was the first time my 4 year old daughter had been to a panto and she loved it. Great for adults and children alike. They only downside for us was the leg room. Even i struggled being 5ft4 never mind my partner who was 6ft3! Luckily he has an isle... More

Went to see current panto performance with work and both the theatre appearances and panto performance were flat. The inside of the theatre seemed old and needs updating. The performance and displays seem cheap and boring. It didn't keep me engaged or wanting me to watch more.

I haven't been to this theatre for many years. The last few times i went the sound quality was terrible! It put me off going there. Thankfully the sound issues seem to have been sorted out. Went on the first night of the panto jack and the beanstalk. Very enjoyable evening! A lot of the jokes went way above children's... More

The staff were absolutely fantastic, arrived early with my mother in law who is in her 90's, they allowed us in and found a chair for her to sit on, the theatre was very comfortable and the chairs exceptionally comfortable to sit on for over two hours, great parking just behind for disabled so very easy all round.

On Tuesday 8 November my wife and I went to the lovely Central Theatre at Chatham. Although we live a considerable distance from Chatham, this splendid theatre has become a firm favourite of ours which we enjoy visiting as often as possible. I understand this lovely 960 seat theatre was first opened in 1908 as the "Wesleyan Central Hall" and... More
