Whats On At The Theatre

Of course, one of the perks of living Kent is our proximity to London, with all sights and activities our capital has to offer, and with the West End in close reach of most of the county, there are plenty of shows, musicals and attractions to make the most of.

That said, we are spoilt for choice with our local theatres and productions.  If you prefer to support the local community theatre, or simply prefer something a little closer to home, then here is our guide to the theatres in Kent and a taster of forthcoming productions and events.
