Louise Hardy

London artist Louise Hardy is a hugely respected, emerging artist who has recently completed a Masters’ Degree at City and Guilds of London Art School and a month-long residency in Canada. Here she shows paintings that demonstrate the breadth of her practice, from early work based on the River Thames to those inspired by her love of colour, form and monumental architecture.

  • The Astor is a unique place, theatre and meeting place.. Professionals mingle with amateurs and locals. It has wide ranging facilities for diverse activities. The management are helpful and friendly. It is a lovely place to perform, watch or participate.

  • We held our wedding reception here on 22 June with a live band and had the most amazing night!
    We wanted something relaxed and fun and that's exactly what we got...
    I would recommend this venue for a large party with a live band.

  • A jewel in this thriving seaside town
    Such a genuinely wonderful theatre, bar restaurant, art gallery, tucked away in the up and coming seaside town

  • Always a warm welcome from Team Astor and patrons of your delightful little theatre and a privilege to play such a well run and much loved venue.’Use it or lose it’ is a phrase I always bandy about but we need people to pack out theatres like the Astor so that we can carry on the great tradition of LIVE! entertainment and encourage young people to enjoy it as we have always done.

  • The Astor Theatre is a central pillar of culture in Deal. Historically and currently, the theatre has served the community and beyond with vision and dignity. The outreach work and community engagement is exemplary and as a visiting performer I have always been welcomed with support and kindness. Long may the Astor continue to shine a light on the Kent coast, a beacon of theatre, film, music, performance and more.
