Lockdown Rehearsal

We have been very busy behind the scenes booking new dates and securing next years programme not to mention Panto 2020 and quietly getting ready for our delayed annual summer season this year! Here is a short video from rehearsals –

We attended this lovely little theatre for a matinee performance of songs from the musicals. The show was performed by members of Ramsgate Operatic Society. A very good show with some excellent vocalists and dancers. Lovely to have a cup of tea in the garden during the interval.

This Theatre is unique in the fact that its annual programme offers extreme variety, within a small village style theatre experience. Proffesionally run, you can see quality plays, pantomime, song, dance, comedy, live music and community events to name but a few. Ticket prices are amazingly reasonable compared to other theatres and have no bookings fees if you book directly. Definitely take a look, you will not be disappointed.


We have belonged to the friends since we bought our holiday home in Broadstairs six years ago and always try to attend as many performances as we can. Wonderfully friendly atmosphere and a wide range of productions to suit all tastes-the summer repertory season has become a must for us and as other reviewers have pointed out is excellent value and the quality is astonishing..


We Hope To See You Soon!
