Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

Located in the Tankerton district to the east of Whitstable, Kent. The Lawn Pavilion was constructed opposite the old Tankerton Hotel on the Tankerton slopes.

Starting life as an open air stage, eventually a single storey utilitarian building was built upon the site. It was primarily a theatre for small variety productions but showed some films in the late-1930’s.

By the 1950’s, the Lawn Pavilion was used as an annex by the nearby Dunlem School (Tankerton Road). It was ultimately demolished by the 1960’s.

The space later served as a picnic area and children’s playground, facilities that were popular with customers of the adjacent Tankerton Hotel.

Following closure of the hotel, the site reverted back to a grass extension of the Tankerton slopes.
