This building is the old Chatham town hall and as such wasn't built as a theatre,the first 5 rows are on the level but after that they are raised with quite a steep climb.There is a bar to purchase drinks and is open at the interval .We enjoyed the show,the sound and lighting was ok .

I take my daughter here to musical theatre and I have to say everyone is so welcoming and lovely, The place is deceptively huge, with upstairs to the theatre, and downstairs to the basement is all the dance classes. They have a small café downstairs that's serves small bites and drinks, and upstairs in the theatre they serve alcoholic beverages.... More

The Brook Theatre in Chatham is an iconic, cultural landmark right at the heart of Chatham town centre, with easy access to it. There are a wide range of activities and clubs you can join, and there are regular shows on offer to have a look at. On-site parking isn't that good, so would recommend parking on the Medway Council... More

We have been to the Brook on several occasions for the Cabaret of Curiosities and it has always been a value for money evening. The staff take such a pride in what they are doing and are always friendly. The bar although a bit small and does find it hard to cope on occasions is really well priced. It makes... More

The Brook is a traditional looking theatre and has run loads of courses for children from hip hop to full on plays. My son has used it loads and there was always a quality performance at the end. He was well looked after by staff

We were given some tickets to see The Sound of Musicals and absolutely loved it. The theatre is lovely. It has maintained many original features and I'd love to go back and see more of it. The show was brilliant and the children from The Kent Stage Academy were adorable. The drinks and snacks at the theatre were all reasonably... More

The show was specifically themed for 3-6 years old, and it was great we went for my sons 4th birthday with one of his friends and family. It was excellent, the play kept the kids interested as you moved through different sets with the cast. They got the kids involved in the action which my little boy thought was the... More

The theatre might be small, but staff there are most helpful. Where ever you sit, in the stall or on the raked seating, the view is good and the sound is excellent. The bar staff are on the ball and have your interval drinks ready and waiting, so no queueing up.
