We bring world-class artists and companies to Canterbury, including visits by the National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company, Glyndebourne Touring Opera, Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures and the Philharmonia Orchestra. We also co-produce (with Evolution Productions) an award-winning pantomime that is watched by over 100,000 people each year.

Situated in the heart of our building, The Marlowe Studio is a performance space dedicated to the presentation of bold and challenging theatre that reflects the spirit of Christopher Marlowe, Canterbury’s most famous son. The Studio’s programme includes exciting new theatre by some of this country’s most exciting companies including Soho Theatre, Paines Plough, Vamos Theatre and The Paper Birds Theatre Company.

The Marlowe Kit, situated in Stour Street, is used for our popular programme of creative workshops.
