About The Oval

Once renovated and revitalised, The Oval Bandstand and Lawns is destined to become a significant part of Margate’s cultural landscape. This year, despite the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, The Oval Bandstand and Lawns intends to host over 12 music or theatre performances, 7 community events, 4 outdoor cinemas, and we hope to welcome over 7,000 visitors through the gates.

  • The Oval Bandstand is a large capacity outdoor amphitheatre in Cliftonville and is open throughout the year.
  • The Oval Lawns comprises over 4 acres of public amenity space.
  • The Oval Bandstand has an artistic policy of open access and will host a huge range of events including Cinema, Theatre, Music, Comedy, Circus, Wrestling and other Special Events.
