Hi there, just wanted to compliment all involved in last Weds show in Dartford. I had been working in the area and had to stay overnight, my supervisor who lives in the area suggested we went to see this Country Experience. As I missed Dolly Parton at Glastonbury I was delighted to accept. What a fab evening - your look-a-like... More

I didn't know what to expect but the quality of the show was excellent, All artists were covered by 2 acts and they have mastered every performance the show included Dolly Parton and her country super stars Patsy Cline, Billie Jo Spears, Kenny Rogers, Willie Nelson and John Denver. Loved the whole show from start to finish

The show "one man, two guvnors" on 8/8/14 was as expected a great performance. However the lack of any form of air conditioning made the whole evening so uncomfortable that in the 2nd half, if I had been at the end of an aisle I would have left. It seemed upon leaving that the whole audience were overheated and complaining... More

Located in the heart of Dartford, next to three car parks, and Dartford train station, the Orchard Theatre is very easy to get to by public or private transport. Inside the Theater is modern and well maintained, seats are comfortable, and staff very helpful. All seats offer a good view, but avoid the first row of the dress circle if... More
