The Criterion

The Rotary Radio UK studios are located in the famous and extraordinary premises of The Criterion in Blue Town on the Isle of Sheppey.

With a focus on promoting and preserving the local community, local history and charities; The Criterion is Rotary exemplified.

One of the few remaining Music Halls of the British Isles, The Criterion has a place in entertainment history unlike no other to be found today!

With its Music Hall history and still-operating stage, many seasoned, famed, new and upcoming acts perform there, continuing the tradition of the Music Hall The Criterion is keeping alive.

A cinema - showing regular 'out-now' films, a vintage tea-room and bar, and a large hall for private parties; The Criterion is a thriving local business with the Rotary focus on helping the community.

As a heritage centre,The Criterion features several rooms filled with a plethora of unique items from Blue Town and the Isle of Sheppey's history, from the World Wars to modern times and a particular emphasis on a fairly renowned local resident named Charles Dickens.

As the home of Rotary Radio UK, we are delighted to highlight the wondrous work the volunteers and owners of The Criterion are dedicating themselves to in our shared ethos of 'Service Above Self'.
