This is a lovely little theatre, steeped in history. The layout is very traditional and as comfortable as you would expect for a theatre of this age, although most seats give a fair view. This is a little gem of a theatre for some of the lesser known acts and performances on the circuit and I have seen some fabulous... More

We have seen many different acts (including some bizarre "am dram" here, however the venue is a beautiful reminder of a by gone era. A must to visit, both for the history and the performance! Enjoy the theatre as much as the gig.... (&don't forget to check out the photos in the bar!)

Cosy, intimate, great value and good fun. Most beautiful small Theatre. Went to see Stephen K Amos live. Absolutely hilarious. You could tell he was massively enjoying the quirky nature of Margate residents. A hidden gem of beautiful Margate.

This theatre is getting some great names. Fab seats where ever you sit downstairs. Can't say about upstairs as we always sit in the stalls. Lovely theatre and makes for a fab night out

Just returned home from a show. Great show, beautiful theatre rude and arrogant staff. As my mother is a regular follower of tonight's act we are well aware of the no filming or photo policy.

I love the Theatre Royal Margate and have seen all sorts of shows and events there, from their Open Days to experimental theatre, a tour and Paul Merton. The programming is varied and brings in some of the best productions on tour around the UK. The auditorium is beautiful and if you go, walk down towards the front of the... More
