This is a nice theatre to see a show, perhaps a little run down, but it is old. Can fit quite a few people in when busy. I've seen a few plays here by the Willington Players which I'd recommend anyone to go and see!

We have watched several charity plays and have found the Hazlitt very welcoming and friendly. The bar is a reasonable size but disappointingly all drinks are served in plastic glasses. The acoustics are good and it has a family feel to it.

I have been to see a couple of shows here recently. They have a range of good quality acts on here, and it's a small venue so you get a fairly view of the stage from pretty much anywhere. BUT the seats are so cramped - I'm only 5 foot 6 and my knees were pressed uncomfortably into the back... More

Went here to see Snow White just before Christmas, was a brilliant show very entertaining cast and performance. Took our 3 year old and he enjoyed it! The checking of tickets system is a bit of a free for all as the back log blocks the whole walk way. Seats are rather uncomfortable but as expected. Staff are friendly. Bar... More

I had my 30th birthday party in the Exchange Studio, I booked it a year and a half in advance to make sure everything was perfect. As well as the Exchange Studio, I asked for the 4th Wall which is another room off the studio that was going to be used for an indoor bouncy castle. Everything was booked and... More

It's not the greatest venue by any stretch of the imagination and when you consider this is the county town of Kent it's pretty poor. Local am dram would fit in ok but you can soon see why it's only C list acts that appear here. The whole layout looks very 1950s inside but I guess it's OK for the... More

Everything was great except the sound system which made hearing the words of the songs difficult. i sat in row N and have seen this show in many locations, so know how good MHT normally is. I'm also in to high end hifi and appreciate good quality mid-range sound which is where vocal sound is centred- i didn't expect hifi... More

We went to see the show 'Nashville Nights and Dixie Days' (a Neil Sands Production) at the Hazlitt Theatre on Saturday 20 September. We were very keen to see this show as we have seen many Neil Sands Productions previously, so were aware of what absolutely fantastic shows he produces. This was our first visit to this lovely little traditional... More
