Having been to the theatre several times this year, I felt I really should leave a review. On all occasions I have booked and eaten in the Green room and can honestly say the food is fantastic. The staff are attentive and polite. All the shows I have seen were excellent and can't wait to return.

The theatre is relatively new and seems out of place in Canterbury. It was quite a change from those in London. That aside, it is modern, clean and well run. The only production that even remotely interested us in our four nights in town was a ballet, Romeo and Juliet. The interpretation was overly modern and not entertaining enough for... More

We loved seeing another great production at the Marlowe over the weekend (Shawshank Redemption) and cannot praise the Marlow enough. A great venue with the capability of putting on amazing and really clever productions.

We went to this theatre earlier this week. It is quite a nice theatre - not big and grand but does the job. Good location and plenty of parking nearby. Staff are friendly. Not a great choice of drinks and snacks at the bar and also quite expensive but we would visit again.

Have had the very great pleasure to have visited this venue a few times over the years and have as yet never had any bad experiences. The building is always clean, the staff helpful & friendly....always a great place to enjoy a show. Be aware however that the refreshments served during the intervals are more than a little over priced.

my husband and I have just got back from a Gala Proms night at the Marlow (4/9/16) What a great night out. Fabulous music, orchestra was amazing, the conductor was great and amusing too. We had perfect stall seats which were so reasonably priced I don't know how the theatre make any money. I would certainly recommend this concert when... More
