I haven't been to this theatre for many years. The last few times i went the sound quality was terrible! It put me off going there. Thankfully the sound issues seem to have been sorted out. Went on the first night of the panto jack and the beanstalk. Very enjoyable evening! A lot of the jokes went way above children's... More

The staff were absolutely fantastic, arrived early with my mother in law who is in her 90's, they allowed us in and found a chair for her to sit on, the theatre was very comfortable and the chairs exceptionally comfortable to sit on for over two hours, great parking just behind for disabled so very easy all round.

On Tuesday 8 November my wife and I went to the lovely Central Theatre at Chatham. Although we live a considerable distance from Chatham, this splendid theatre has become a firm favourite of ours which we enjoy visiting as often as possible. I understand this lovely 960 seat theatre was first opened in 1908 as the "Wesleyan Central Hall" and... More

Les McKeown was good at performing this show for us tonight. The band did a great job of putting together lots of old hits of the 70,s. The venue here was good but a little dated. The bar was good and drinks reasonable. Facilities ok with a feel good factor for atmosphere 4/5.

As Sean lock had other tv commitments! I purchased to tickets online and so they had... More

A classic theatre and have seen many acts there over the years but yet to see a poor show. A cosy atmosphere with good acoustics. I have to say also the seats and legroom is tight.
