Been to lot's of shows here, most recently Mark Morris (Ex. Bluetones). It's a nice venue, quite small and 'Cosy'. It is better for standing gig's as the chairs aren't that comfortable. Sadly it can be poorly attended, at the Mark Morris gig there were only 48 people there, with 150 seats set out!. The selection of drinks over the... More

Or something like that... Went to the matinee session of a kids musical today. The cast tried hard to engage the audience, and about a third of us joined in. Good little sing along.

We went here to pick up our tickets for the "Deal Nobody Knows" walk as part of "The Deal Festival". The staff were helpful and friendly.

Be it an 80's disco, artists' open studio/ art and craft fair, record sale, comedy show, performing arts or just a catch up coffee in the astor's bar/diner then this is a venue to go to. Just off the high street which won awards a couple it years back, it is a central venue.

Lovely place, wish all theatres were like this! Friendly local feel, old fashioned yet up to date! VERY INTIMATE BUT IN NO WAY INTIMIDATING! Parking nearby, refreshments without the terrible ques of the big theatres. This theatre have many events including plays, bands, group meetings... just about anything. I highly recommend this little venue! A MUST SEE IN DEAL!

This is the second time we travelled from Folkestone to see this band play here. A fantastic night. Music brilliant and the atmosphere great. The Astor theatre is a nice small venue which makes all the entertainment there very personal. Can't wait to see something else there soon.

The Astor has a wide variety of entertainment for all ages and buying tickets is so easy with their helpful volunteers to advise and help. I've just booked lots of shows and talks but beware, there is a £1 charge for cards and tickets are non refundable. Still very good value though and it's well worth celebrating and using such...
