Folkestone Quarterhouse was the chosen venue for a sing-along Charity evening to Mamma Mia on behalf of the Jim Godden Trust . The very pleasant and well mannered Bar Staff were working so hard to accommodate the pre-show refreshments for the ‘full house’ of friends and supporters of this worthy cause . The Venue is very well appointed and there... More

I got to many concerts and this venue has to rate as one of the best small intimate ones i have been to. The sound was good and there is a good view of the stage from all over. There is a decent bar and the staff were al well organised, friendly and helpful.

We say this production of Follow the Herring at the Quarterhouse in Folkestone last weekend. It is a brilliant play with a great script and wonderful singing by the Landmark Show Choir, a local female choir. The story explores the the extraordinarily hard working lives of the fisherwives in the 1880's in the herring industry. A wonderful music drama.

We first went to see Lee on tour, he was brilliant. The king of ad lib. Up there with my favourite comedians (Eddie, Dylan and Stu) Really good value night, even better than we had hoped for. Went to the comedy club, room laid out with tables and chairs, which was a nice touch, very cheap night, bar inside the... More

Our daughter gave us tickets to go and see Lee Hurst, who was performing at the Quaterhouse in March. It is quite a small theatre, but excellent to go and watch a comedian as he can make you feel part of the show, which Lee Hurst did, and my husband and I had a really good evening. The only disappointment... More

Have been here with friends for a play and three comedy acts, most recently Lee Hurst. The Quarterhouse attracts some good if not excellent acts, and the atmosphere is great with a friendly bar upstairs too. This is an excellent amenity for Folkestone and I hope it gets the support it deserves - I will be there when I can.

I went to the comedy club evening, there were 3 comedians, 2 were very good and 1 was good. The venue was set up with tables and chairs type seating, this gave it a club feel. The bar was open at the beginning of the evening and in the interval. The staff were friendly and helpful. The evening was from... More

The Quarterhouse is absolutely the best place in Folkestone to see a good comedian at a reasonable price. As long as you book early you can have a really good evening out here for £15-£20 a head. I've seen some excellent acts here, comedy, drama and meetings for local projects.

A good entertainment hub which shows a wide selection of the modern arts. If it seated 100+ more it would attract even more big names as it's a great place to perform

Have been here twice now. Once to see Julian Clary, the other time 2 or 3 local bands. It is a Quarterhouse, IE, a 1/4 of the size of some of the other venues in Kent. I would say, seating it must be 200+?. For the bands we saw I'd say double, as it was standing. So, because of its... More
