Very impressed with the performance of 'Les Miserables' at The Tower Theatre. Performed by the youth section who put their heart and soul into it. We have seen this production in the West End several times but enjoyed watching the youngster perform. A well deserved standing ovation. Will be visiting again. A bonus to have a local theatre.

A half term trip and our first to this theatre. Was really impressed by the youth theatre's performance of Les Mis- my 12 year old enjoyed it and it wasn't hugely different to the west end show we saw years' back- all the key points were in. Just one thing- actors w/out mikes couldn't be heard, a bit of a... More

Spent a thoroughly enjoyable evening watching a very proessional adaptation of this musical. This was our first visit to this very interesting venue. The ticket prices, refreshments and programme were incredibly modest. The youngsters in the cast were adorable and I am sure some will go on to bigger things. So pleased we found this place and will make a... More

Been here lots of times: to see shows, quiz nights and concerts. The Tower is the home of FHODS, an enthusiastic band of volunteers who put on plays, musicals and pantomimes and also run the Theatre. There is a popular weekly Jazz Night. The Theatre is also available for private hire for parties, weddings etc. and is used by the... More

Decided to go in the little cafe above the theatre for lucnh, and it was a bargain. £10 for two sarnies/crisps/salads, and huge pot of tea for two! The theatre is built into the cliff, from the beach it is quite a feat of engineering, and from the top you can walk right over it, and think it is just... More

If you want a good night out, you should consider going to the Tower Theatre!!. Great shows and a beautiful theatre . Jazz night every Thursday featuring world class acts is worth checking out! There is a fantastic Play coming up " sailor Beware" so get your tickets soon, as is such a popular play the theatre should be packed

Ambience, comfort, viewing, indeed everything about it is of 5 Star rating. Always a pleasure to enjoy concerts, plays, pantomimes etc. there. In addition to the attractions that take place in the main auditorium, there is the regular (generally Thursdays at 8.30 p.m.) Folkestone Jazz Club that bounces in the huge comfortable Bar / Lounge and it always gives a...

Amazing night of theatre at The Tower, a Nepalese cinema night, fantastic to see something different! Lovely food, drinks flowing courtesy of the wonderful bar staff (especially Cathy, rushed off her feet but always smiling!). Special mention for Ben, the man behind the curtain making sure everything went smoothly! A hidden gem in Folkestone!

Excellent theatre facilities, putting on a good variety of shows and musicals. Friendly and helpful staff but not huge amount of parking though.
