The Stag Sevenoaks now operates as a charity, and includes a theatre, two digital cinema screens, and an alternative performance and conferencing facility.
The Stag was originally built as the Majestic Cinema, and opened on August 22 1936 with the musical farce ‘When Knights Were Bold’ which the Daily Express described as “a rare triumph of unimaginativeness”. Now 80 years later, the shell of the building looks almost identical. But the 1930s shell hides a dark and twisting story, a tumultuous, ongoing drama which has refused to stick to the script.
Today the venue hosts an array of events and performances which appeal to audiences of all ages. Its management, its staff, its volunteers, the town and district councils and the Sevenoaks community are all determined that The Stag remains at the heart of Sevenoaks: Majestic in times past, and majestic today.
There is pay and display car parking at the rear. This car park can become busy on show nights so please allow enough time to park. There are a number of additional car parks in the centre of Sevenoaks and within a short walk of the theatre.
