Orchard Theatre

Located in the heart of Dartford Town Centre is the 956-seat Orchard Theatre. The well-loved theatre was built by Dartford Borough Council and opened by HRH Duke of Kent in 1983. Since its opening, it has been home to a wide range of fantastic entertainment including West End musicals, comedians, bands, dramas, dance and opera as well as annual Christmas pantomimes. With a delicious restaurant also on-site, the Orchard Theatre makes the perfect night out for people of all ages.

The Orchard theatre has been a touring house since 1983 and includes everything from children's shows to comedy, plus everything in between.
