The Woodville

We are continuing to make improvements to our entertainment centre, The Woodville, with the most recent enhancement being to the Paul Greengrass Cinema which now boasts 3D capability and Dolby 7.1 sound system. These digital enhancements have enabled the screening of new release blockbusters movies alongside live broadcasts, such as from the National Theatre.

Further enhancements over recent months have also been made possible through sponsorship deals with local businesses and include to the lower studio space which is used frequently used for the Comedy Club or smaller performances, and to the outdoor space at the rear of the Kent Bar, which is now transformed to a 'secret garden' – the perfect outdoor space to enjoy a drink on a fair weather day.

The Woodville hosts a full programme of entertainment for everyone from popular children's shows to nationally and internationally recognised stars of screen and stage. For more information about the venue and event programme visit The Woodville website.
