Always a treat seeing a Lindley Players show as they are of such high standard and technically very impressive. Also great to see the staff so friendly and passionate about the theatre as they are all volunteers. Lovely community feel and a brilliant advocate for the arts.

On the outside it looks like a cute little theatre and on the inside it looks like a quite little theatre. This place is easy to get to by public transport with the bus pretty much outside. The staff were friendly and welcoming and I had a great here.

This was my first visit to the theatre to see Fairport Convention. I was so impressed with the atmosphere and acoustics and wished I had discovered it before. It really was cosy having only about 180 seats. I would love to attend more performances here. For a town like Whitstable and being June, it seems a little underused. How about... More

Very small theatre in the centre of town, home to the local amateur dramatic society. Well worth a trip. There are car parks in the area too, as well as a lathe variety of pubs, bars and restaurants

Several visits to this local theatre and a wide variety of amateur productions seen, always enjoyable if not quite of a fully professional nature. Surprising how much talent is around. Latest production - "Who's life is it anyway?" was extremely well written and thought provoking although the acting was not quite convincing.

Visited The Playhouse for the first time & I must say we were very impressed. It's by no means the largest venue we will ever go to - 182 seats, but the layout & seating is very good. Legroom in front of the seats is very good, none of this knees touching the person in front, and the view from... More
