What a change from the dingy theatre of my youth. The Central theatre is a delight. The staff are friendly and efficient. The show my wife and I saw was a tribute to Simon and Garfunkel - the songs of my teenage years, and we were both transported. Great evening and a great surprise, having called "on spec" an hour...

Took my family to opening night of Beauty and the Beast Pantomime last night and a great time was had by all. It is a fantastic venue with lovely, helpful staff. It was clean and tidy on arrival. If anyone is planning on taking their family this year for Panto I would definitely recommend going. The show was amazing. Great... More

My wife and I went to see the fabulous Christmas matinee at the Central Theatre, Chatham on Monday 9 November. This was the second time we had visited this lovely traditional theatre so I don't intend to say much about it on this occasion. I believe I covered everything about the theatre in my previous review dated 3 July. As... More

a great little theatre, great acoustics when used properly, (some of the acts can deafen you with unnecessary volume) Its played regularly by a small handful of great comics and some good music acts

Great theater not much leg room up top but always makes you feel as if the modern world has been left outside and you are transported into the world they have set for you inside. I have enjoyed many times in here and love going back every time..
