Roundabout Festival

*Due to the adverse weather the Roundabout Festival events have been moved to Dreamland and Turner Contemporary. Please see the festival website for event locations*

Roundabout is the world’s first pop-up, plug-and-play theatre. It flat packs into a lorry and pops up all over the country in theatres, school halls, warehouses, sports centres, town centres, car parks and fields.

A unique, intimate pop-up theatre is again returning to Margate. You’ll be seated around the stage with a great view of the actors. Roundabout combines comfortable seating with cutting edge sound and lighting technology to create an unmissable theatrical experience. 

You can see any PP show for just £5. Just some of the events include
