With a genuine commitment to developing, presenting and nurturing excellence across all of the performing arts, The Marlowe aims not just to be an outstanding regional venue, but a platform for emerging talent in the Kent region and a source of inspiration for the next generation of audiences.

The aim of The Marlowe Theatre Development Trust, as a UK registered charity (1120751) is to grant funds and develop support for The Marlowe so that it can deliver this mission.
