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

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.

I only knew of the existence of this lovely little theatre when Claire Teall mentioned it on her radio 2 Big Band programme. My first visit, in July, was to a concert by the Midlands Youth Jazz Orchestra (MYJO).A couple of locals I asked directions from had never heard of the place. I was knocked out by the venue and...

The variety of shows here means there's something for everyone, the staff are all volunteers and really enjoy chatting to the customers, and the converted church that makes the theatre is very impressive! Definitely worth having an evening out here!
