Owner description: A gem of a theatre in Margate town presenting an exciting mix of shows and events.
Reviewed April 12, 2014

Just saw an excellent production of "Much ado about nothing" by the Globe Theatre touring company. Lots of fun and humour in a brilliantly acted and staged version of one of Shakespeare's best comedies, exploring themes still relevant today. A great little theatre staffed by people eager to help and ensure everyone has an enjoyable evening. Get there when you can!

Hi Rob

Thanks for the kind words, these have certainly been passed on to the front of house team.

Thrilled to hear that you enjoyed Shakespeare's Globe and we hope to have them return in 2015. There's plenty more Shakespeare coming up in 2014, do check our website for details.

Regards
Kyle

Went to see Much Ado about Nothing - Globe theatre on tour. Apt theatre to hold an excellent production. Loved the fact that the theatre could do with some TLC. Atmospheric - you could go back in time and imagine the entertainment performed there.Tucked away in a residential area and surrounded by some beautiful Georgian homes. A nice theatre and obviously very popular. Hope it carries on and is not neglected as happened in Chatham. Another historical building that could not be sustained due to lack of funding. I liked it - keep on producing and performing !

Hi Chrissy,

Thanks for the wonderfully kind words about the theatre. We couldn't agree more RE: Atmosphere, it was certainly built with that in mind.

We hope to welcome you again, do keep an eye on our What's On guides.

Best Regards
Kyle

Atmosphere abounds in this little gem of an auditorium. A perfect pocket-sized version of an 18th century playhouses where there is always something interesting going on. Touring companies of renown or local arts groups find a welcome here. Definitely worth a visit for its architecture alone but you will probably have an entertaining show to enjoy as well.

A gem wish should be cherished seating and bar reminiscent of London theatres - loved the plush seats and the little bar

The theatre is amazing and worth a visit to see the old fashioned well maintained theatre. Can't wait to book for another performance.
