Theatres offer not only a great range of quality entertainment- they also have a story to tell.

Margate is not home to one but three theatres each with their own story – Theatre Royal; grade II* listed dating back to 1787, the country’s second oldest, Tom Thumb Theatre; one of the smallest, a converted Victorian coach house with only 50 seats and the prestigious Winter Gardens; over 100 years old and has played host to many famous entertainers, big band names and comedians. The Beatles performed here for six consecutive nights. 

With the only Summer Rep season in Kent and patrons Dame Judi Dench, David Suchet CBE and Julian Fellowes DL, the Sarah Thorne Theatre presents plays, music and theatre performances by local and national groups.

The local theatres provide a diverse range of productions, from local amateur productions to national and international tours as well as popular music concerts
