We have been an infrequent visitor over the years and remember how it once looked. These days with a good makeover the theatre, under its new management, is clean and functional. As a consequence, our visits to see great musicians - just the other day we saw the great Geno Washington - are becoming more frequent. They have a good... More

My 2nd visit to the Astor was arranged on purpose, because I really liked the place 1st time around. I've never liked seated Arena's, so the open (standing) area is excellent, you can literally get right up to the stage. Great little venue, will defo return.

Historic well-maintained building with many original features. Interesting stalls and an art display in the upper floor.

First the positives: Went to the venue to see Susan Calman on 9/10/14. Rang on the day for returned tickets, alas they didn't have any, but some became available a few minutes later and the venue phoned me back offering to me! Top 1st class service! Disabled access was very good. Bar the lack of radar key system on toilet.... More

Just a great little venue, James and his merry band of helpers work so hard to give the town such a diverse array of entertainment, we just attended the annual Dave Hatton Hootenanny, loads of talent here such a nice atmosphere so many friends just lovely. This place is an asset to Deal and long may that remain so. The... More

Relaxed homely type venue. Pleasant staff and concert goers. Sound system tends to be too high for seats near the stage.

What a fantastic place to spend an evening with family and friends. The staff were brilliant serving food and drinks to a large number of people and nothing was too much trouble. The theatre is a delight and I look forward to seeing a production here soon.
