We welcome you all, young and old, to our little gem hidden in Blue Town, Sheerness. We are a cinema, music hall, museum and show destination right here on the Isle of Sheppey. If you’re looking for a day/night out, then look no further.

Blue Town Heritage Centre is entirely run by volunteers. The centre has a number of displays showing the vast historical significance of the area. We have an aviation annex at Eastchurch, the birthplace of aviation.

We also operate the Criterion Theatre and Cinema and have a vast array of shows and events to suit all tastes. We are open Thursday to Saturday.

Housed in an old music hall. Like going back in time. This wonderful little Theatre, museum, Tea shop. Shows films on Fridays, other times live shows. Very interesting little venue.

"Beautifully restored and maintained"

I couldn't believe it - as if by magic, you go through a very ordinary door back in time. Beautifully restored and maintained. Manned by enthusiastic volunteers - I loved it.

"Deserves to be better known"

Great variety of information and artefacts, and very well informed friendly volunteers. It deserves to be better known. There's a small team room too. And one of the few surviving music halls.
