Great show, great cast and a thoroughly enjoyable show in a lovely local theatre. Good view of the stage from our Circle seats.

Great for a good night out. if you live local I'd recommend their premier card (about £30 per year) to save loads on tickets and early booking. Easy parking close by and lots of pubs and restaurants nearby for before or after show.

We visited the Orchard Theatre yesterday to see Russell Brand and he was brilliant by the way! We went as a family and decided to have dinner in the restaurant and by looking at the menu and the photos on the web it didn't seem too bad a decision. Although the food was 'nice' the ambience of the restaurant is... More

The Orchard is something all of us in Dartford can be proud of, it's a theatre that would give any London one a run for its money. The shows are great quality and value. I have seen Derren Brown Infamous here and Buddy Holly musical, both were fantastic experiences.

Such a beautiful, lovely and classic theatre. Wouldn't be out of place in a London location and certainly stands up to what is showing. Great bar service, great sound, great acts, just great all round. We're lucky to have a place like this in a town centre in Dartford.

Theatre was better than I thought it would be. Tickets reasonably priced as was the bar drinks & the seats had a great view of the stage. Al Murray was pure genius as always!

We travelled for 2 hours from Hastings to see The Wedding Singer on Saturday night as it wasn't showing anywhere closer to home. I was extremely pleased with how lovely the cinema was! We parked at the train station car park and literally walked 2 minutes over the bridge, straight to the theatre. Our seats were in a brilliant position.... More

Nice theatre, good shows, low key but organised and friendly. Take care when booking some seats as knee room is tight especially on front row of circle. All round View with no obstacles to restrict view.

Thank Bev C
