The Central Hall is a great little theatre, ideal for watching your favourite acts in more intimate surroundings than much larger venues. Comfortable seating, nicely refurbished. Good sound quality. I prefer the Circle for seating, but all; areas have good views of the stage. The...More

Travelled from Dover despite of weather. Easy to find and plenty of relatively cheap parking in the town centre. Lots of merchandise on sale and drinks ok priced. Comfy seat and nice little theatre. Decent night out.

We went to see Rick Wakeman in concert. It was the first-time we had been to this venue. Our seats were very good with excellent view of the stage. The small bar down stairs

I have been here to watch stand-up three times or so: it's a nice old Theatre which has seen better days, but that is part of its charm. The staff are unfailing sweet, but the bar could do with restocking and a speedier service!

They only really do snacks at the theatre rather than full meals -- Google 'Central Theatre Chatham Sandwich Cellar menu' (Trip Advisor won't let me post the direct link). There are other places to eat in Chatham High Street... More
