Family Zone

Woodville Family Zone

Families are highly valued here at The Woodville, which is why we go to great lengths to ensure that not only do we have a calendar of events which is truly diverse and fun for all ages, but are committed to catering for all needs.

We offer baby change and bottle warming, buggy parking, lifts to all areas, wheelchair spaces, good quality food and drink for kids (and grown ups!), plus great value group ticket deals for family and friends.

There is plenty of local parking and the venue is an easy walk from trains and buses.

Family Shows


We have a calendar of events which is truly diverse and fun for all ages. From great live music shows starring the likes of Gareth Gates, Jane McDonald and the Drifters, to regular drama productions and big-name comedy featuring TV regulars such as Phil Jupitus, Josh Widdecombe and Seann Walsh.

And as well as hosting everything from Superslam Wrestling to classical and choral events we also now have live theatre shows, opera and even the Last Night of the Pythons beamed to our cinema screen.

Family Cinema


The Paul Greengrass Cinema may be Gravesend’s only big screen cinema but we never rest on our laurels. We have recently made considerable investment in a new bigger screen with 3D capability and upgraded to Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound.

We have some great deals on offer including Family Film Club, Kids films on Saturday mornings with free tickets for grown-ups, film preview mornings and Cinema Parties for kids from 5 to 105. Please ask us for details.

Food and Drink


We have a great choice of food for kids and our Spotlites Brasserie is open daily from 8.30am until 3.30pm Monday to Friday and two hours before each performance, offering excellent value for money and plenty of choice.

In the morning you can enjoy a speciality tea or coffee with a freshly baked pastry or bacon sandwich. Freshly filled sandwiches, hot pastries, tasty quiche, jacket potatoes stuffed with your favorite filling and mouth watering homemade soup are on offer daily from 11.30am.

And Spotlites Brasseries is licensed and has a small range of alcoholic beverages.

Party Time


Our Kids Cinema Party Packages include free party invitations, bags of popcorn and a ticket to return and see another movie for every child. And you can choose to have the bar open during the movie to keep the grown-ups happy!

From kids parties to family functions, birthdays, weddings and christening parties, whether you are putting on a show or just wanting to meet friends we have a number of function rooms available to suit your needs. Please call us for more details.
