The Orchard Theatre is conveniently located in the heart of Dartford’s town centre and attracts the latest and most sought after touring productions in the UK. We offer a range of entertainment from leading West End musicals, top comedians, rock bands, dramas and classical music and opera. And of course, our ever popular annual pantomimes.
Dartford has been a busy market town with a rich history since the Romans. It plays host to a very popular and vibrant twice-weekly market within the town centre.
The theatre opened in September 1982 and quickly gained a reputation as one of the country’s premier venues presenting a remarkable range of entertainment. During the twenty five years since its opening, The Orchard has enjoyed incredible success by opening its doors to some of the biggest and most respected names in the fields of arts and entertainment.
The Circle Restaurant, a recent addition, provides fine dining with menus that reflect seasonality, sustainability and innovation, all freshly prepared by our head chef.
