New Marlowe Theatre information
The old Marlowe Theatre was bulldozed in 2009, and this spanking new, state-of-the-art building bolted together in its place opened a few years later. Firmly established as Kent's premier venue for performing arts, the New Marlowe attracts top companies and fast-selling productions. Check out that bizarre auditorium, with its dark faux veneers contrasting sharply with the lifejacket-orange seating.
