Power of Women in Margate
Mar 2020 • Couples
We attended a show compered by LUNATRAKTORS, an amusing folk duo supported by a number of female acts based around Power of Women and International Women’s Day.
The show combined dance, song and music, poetry and of course old folk, otherwise known as Broken Folk by Lunatraktors themselves.
The actual theatre oozes character and a long history dating back originally to the 18th century and is regularly seen to stage famous acts from London’s west end as well as local talent.
A very cosy venue in a traditional style with balconies and boxes and magnificent decor.
If anything could be improved it would be the external structure that needs a bit of TLC.

Another great comedy evening
Feb 2020
Jimeoin: Ramble On!...... memories from my youth. Saw him last year and so looked forward to seeing him again. Show has no obvious theme.... just as it says him chatting and rambling on! Very funny, talking about everyday hings that you can relate to. Usual (?) musical ending to add a little bit of somethiong different. Great show.
Theatre great, staff great. Hope this great little old theatre continues to be successful.... we need to keep places like this thriving.

Panto for kids? I don’t think so!!
Dec 2019
What an amazing experience - booked Aladdin here (Boxing Day) for my grand-daughters birthday. I can’t remember the last time I saw a Panto but also can’t remember when I laughed so much. Had tears rolling down........absolutely brilliant performance and have to say that it was a fantastic, professional show. I would recommend it to anyone, any age, and will definitely go to see their next performance.

Great theatre
Jan 2019
This is a beautiful theatre. Unfortunately it does not make a particularly large amount of monney due to the size and the lack of people wanting to see shows. With this in mine please please please do go and support this theatre. If not this one another theatre near you as it is a dying art form. There is a variety of shows at the theatre royal and they also do tours. It has a rich history and there are also paranormal evening,

Quait old theatre
Oct 2019 • Couples
What a fantastic venue, very small and intimate, mostly run by volunteers, what a gem of history.
Some very famous faces have performed here as well.

Footloose
Oct 2019 • Couples
Theatre seemed small but nice.

Footloose disappointing, felt bad for the performers who were so young and were trying their best but looked petrified and obviously not ready for such a performance, this made it painful to watch. The lead young man was the best.
Sorry.

Sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the show last week, but thanks for passing on your comments. We'll share them with the producing company so that they're aware. Hope we'll see you again here soon, perhaps for something different, but in the meantime, thanks for supporting us.
