    Chatback Comedy at the Parrot pub: Comedy Nights

    by ChatbackComedy Updated May 18, 2010
    1 more image

    Chatback Comedy Club hosts fun and exciting evening comedy shows at the oldest (and most beautiful) pub in Canterbury: The Parrot. The club has been opened since January 2010 and brings hilarious comedians from the London Comedy Circuit to Canterbury.

    We do shows once a month (always on different dates so check on their website). There's a complete mix of comedians, starting at newcomers right up to recognisable names. You never know who you're going to get but it's always great fun. The club is expanding fast and it's a great time to catch our talent packed, crazy and hilarious shows. It's over 18's only so can sometimes be a little edgy.

  • Chill: HOT NEW LOOK REVEALS CHILL, CANTERBURY

    by clubbing Written Jun 4, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Chicago Rock Cafe, Canterbury is set to receive a massive £1.5m refurbishment that will completely transform the venue to reveal a stunning new club called, Chill.

    Due to open on Thursday 10th July for VIP invite holders only and to the full public on Friday 11th, Chill will offer young clubbers a trendy and modern venue to drink, dance and meet people. Detailed graphic representations reveal a high quality finish from the speckled-black dance-floor to the white leather seating areas. Highly-polished chrome fittings and private booth areas are complimented by a highly sophisticated and state-of-the-art sound and lighting system.

    Even the front of the building ‘dances’ with animation as the stylish etchings on the glass front are illuminated by dramatic coloured lighting designed to create a hypnotic effect. The contemporary look venue hopes to offer a totally different late night entertainment experience for Canterbury says general manager, John Tierney.

    “Chill will be a stylish and trendy place for local people that has some of the best facilities of any club in the UK. When people walk through the doors in July, they will not be able to recognise the place but it’s not just the image that we’ve changed. Part of the investment is geared towards the level of service our customers receive that we aim to meet 1st class standards.”

    Chill will also attract top entertainment including DJs and mainstream performance artists. It will also launch a brand new Vibe RnB session on a Thursday night that will bring entertainment such as Tim Westwood, Shortee Blitz, Trevor Nelson as well as US artist Soulja Boy, Joe and Mario.

    John adds: “Our commitment to making Chill one of the best clubs in the area extends to every aspect of our customer and staff experience, making it a popular place to visit as well as work.”

    Further information about the launch will be revealed shortly and the website will go live soon at www.chill-nightclub.com

    Dress Code: Dress code varies depending on event, but generally smart wear - no sportswear.

  • Night club: Chicagos

    by Italianmanboy Updated Mar 31, 2007

    There does not seem to be many dancing places in Canterbury. We arrived here on a Friday night at about 11pm. It was not all that busy but became busy not much later. The English women were very friendly! Some girls I was not sure if they were old enough to be there and some girls seemed to be a bit desperate to kiss men. However, we were looking to find nice English girls not what the English call "tarts". There were some nice girls but it is very loud to talk to them. It is quite expensive. The music on that night seemed to be a range but mainly dance music which was ok.

    Dress Code: Smart to casual but not trainers. Some girls were not wearing much and this did not seem to be a problem so maybe the dress code is mainly for the men.

    MARLOW THEATRE: ENTERTAINMENT

    by whitecliff62 Updated Jan 12, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I would say that the Marlow theatre is one of the most charming theatres in Kent, there are some great acts that perform there too. One of the best shows of the year at the marlow is the christmas panto, and every christmas panto is packed with well known entertainers, including pop stars, actors, and comidiens, and always on the top of the list is comic Dave Lee, he makes me roar with laughter. If you are thinking of booking a ticket for the next christmas panto then book as early as you can, tickets always sell out fast

    Dress Code: We nipped in for a drink, it seemed very relaxed and pretty quiet, we definatly discovered a nice new spot in town!

    If you are not so interested in pubs the Marlowe Theatre is a great alternative....at Christmas the tradition is to go and see the panto! But they have some great shows on all year round...West End shows on tour regularly visit, as do comediens.

    IN CANTERBURY: PUBS

    by kentishgirl Updated Nov 5, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On a night out

    The pubs are located all over the city, there are so many to choose from!!
    Most are open until 11pm, although the odd few have a late license-although you usually have to pay for this privialege.

    Most pubs will have music, in the form of a dj or just a juke box.

    My favourites are the following -

    The unity, on st dunstans street - excellent cocktails,

    wetherspoons - located by the westgate, a chain pub which serves cheaper than average drinks, with a special on most weeknights,

    The Buttermarket, located in the buttermarket (!), a good pub with a cool atmosphere - esp good in summer because you can sit out on the square,

    Beer Cart Arms - Beer cart lane, this pub is ok, it has a younger crowd - but you always get a laugh, music is good and cheap shooters with late opening,

    The penny theatre-located in Northgate- general good atmosphere, student crowd, good music,

    Seven Stars - orange street - tends to have its "local" crowd, but is always a good starting point or even just a few drinks - can get a game of pool here as well,

    The Cherry Tree - White Horse lane - excellent vodka shooters, very small pub, can sit outside in summer,

    Nightclubs!

    Chicago Rock Cafe, hen and stag parties usual venue, very expensive and busy, but a laugh all the same,

    The bizz/works/baa baas - expect a fight! enough said!

    Auberrys - wine bar type place with late opening, always busy and cramped - but with good music and drink.

    Dress Code: They are not that fussy, usually you can wear what you like, however, if you go to a nightclub you usually wont be allowed trainers or denim

    Marlowe Theatre: Take in a show at the theatre

    by nhcram Written Jun 16, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Marlowe advertising CATS

    The Marlowe Theatre is a good place to spend the evening watching one of the many shows that sometimes come fromThe West End of London. It is named after Sir Chirstopher Marlowe the playwright.
    A full list of showings can be sent to you by ringing the box office or going on to their web site. The theatre itself is not big by some standards, but, what it lacks in size it makes up for in atmosphere. There is a good bar where drinks for the interval can be ordered in advance.

    Dress Code: There is no dress code but I always feel smart casual is OK.

    The Venue: Not a great deal to choose from

    by deeper_blue Written Sep 6, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    To be honest Canterbury isn't blessed with the greatest nightlife, in my first year the usual haunts were the Works (a double floor nightclub with a trashy teenage feel to it) opposite Canterbury East station. There was also Churchills by the ABC Cinema although I now think it's changed its name. The best places in Canterbury are at the University on the hill, although admission to the venue is only allowed if you are accompanied by a UKC student.

    Dress Code: Venue- no dress code
    Churchills/The Works- No trainers, t-shirts

    It's a scream is a chain of pubs in Britain, the one in Canterbury has a great atmosphere and is student orientated.
