At The Central Theatre the stage is set for some thrilling entertainment.

The Central Theatre, Chatham

There is nothing like seeing a live show: the anticipation, the atmosphere, the unique connections between audience and performer, and of course the memories. This beautiful 965-seat venue is already home to a myriad of memories and it is waiting for you to come along and make more unforgettable ones of your own.

Making The Central Theatre yours is at the heart of our programming, carefully putting together a season of shows to reflect the tastes of the area.

Musically you can relive the West End greats, pay tribute to some of the world's greatest bands and get up close and personal with the best acts on the circuit.

There's blockbuster comedy, scintillating live music and plenty to fire the kids' imagination. For a trip down cinematic memory lane, take a look at our Afternoon Film Treats, which include a cup of tea or coffee and a tea cake in the ticket price.

Browse all upcoming performances, or if you already know the performance you would like to book, use the quick tickets option to the right.

Please note: when booking seats at The Central Theatre, we can guarantee uninterrupted sight lines for Band A (red) seats only. Band B (blue) seats may be subject to some view restrictions, particularly for music shows where the visiting company brings large speaker towers and places these at the front left and right of the stage.

For your own safety and enjoyment, you may be asked to submit to a bag search on entry to the venue. We thank you for your cooperation with this.
