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!

Plays, musicals, concerts and a place to meet ones friends. Lovingly converted from the largest garrison church in the country by local thespians. Good parking but difficult to get to without a car.

The Tower Theatre is not your usual venue- it nestles within an army barracks (the Ghurka Battallion) and was once St Mark's Church before it was sold and converted to the theatre we know today. There are 300 seats, all of which offer excellent views without obstruction as the rows are raised at a steep rake. There is also the... More

Wonderful Panto at a great theatre, a brilliantly converted Church, amongst the Army barracks of the Ghurkas, at Shornecliffe in Folkestone. Weary from a tragic supposedly pro-Panto at Bromley, it was a real & genuine delight to experience again the thespian viscera of The Tower's amazingly adept company. Book whatever this company of talented folks ever presents....it will be worth... More
