Very small theatre in the centre of town, home to the local amateur dramatic society. Well worth a trip. There are car parks in the area too, as well as a lathe variety of pubs, bars and restaurants

Hello, thank you for your message. Unfortunately we have no shows on during August. If you google Canterbury Events there are a number of websites which detail events in and around Whitstable, if this is of any help to you.
