The current programme includes drama, dance, music, talks, stand-up comedy and children's shows staged both inside and outwith the theatre.
There are a number of car parks within walking distance of the theatre and free street parking is available on most of the surrounding roads after 7pm. It is approximately a 15 minute walk from Margate Railway Station.
