Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury Reviews

  • I visited the Marlowe for the first time recently, since it's re-opening in late 2011 for a rebuild. I was impressed with the modern, relaxed and open feeling of the foyer, which makes you feel welcome and easy to kill some time ahead of your showing with it's large bar positioned within. Staff were friendly and efficient and the walk into the theatre is short and well signposted so it's easy to find your seats. The seats are comfortable and the air conditioned theatre was very pleasant (on a very hot summers day!). All seats are well positioned for a good view of the stage and have no obstructing columns or barriers.

  • Great all round theatre. Have seen shows in the main theatre & also some of the smaller venues hidden away inside that can be used by students & youth groups. Have never seen a bad show here. The lighting & sound are always fantastic & seats are pretty comfy, all with good views of the stage. Drinks from the bar are reasonably priced, everywhere is clean & staff are helpful & friendly. Only downside is the cost of city centre parking, but there has to be something I guess or it would be too perfect!!

  • Lovely theatre in a great location. Just dropped a star because the seats don't have much legroom, and because there aren't many exits from the upper circle with everyone squeezing on to the stairs after the show. Quite a wide range of events on for all ages, although not much has been up my street, yet. Has a good website for booking tickets and info.

  • Always a great view wherever we sit. Fab variety of performances. One of my favourite places to visit

  • Great theatre. I like to sit up in the gods. Own bar and toilets up there with no queuing. Easy access with the lift. Good variety of shows in the heart of Canterbury.
