'Live music venue promoting many styles of acoustic music ... It has always been part of Dartford Folk Club's tradition to encourage Floor Spots and we continue to welcome singers and musicians to the stage ... Tickets are available on the door on a first come, first served basis. [We do not offer pre-booking but enquiries are very welcome.] The Venue has seating capacity for 100+ people so admission is rarely a problem.'


‘Formed in 1919 ... There are usually four concerts a year, all of which take place in the Dartford area ... One concert each season is a Civic concert. Many of our soloists are professional singers but we also aim to encourage young emerging singers by offering opportunities for them to sing at selected concerts ... We suggest potential new members come, initially, to two or three rehearsals, to "try us out" and see if we are what you are looking for!’

‘Formed in 1979 with the aim of allowing musicians of all ages to come together to make music. From an initial attendance of 10 people the band has grown to a regular membership of around 35. We still maintain the aim of allowing people to have fun making music and welcome brass and woodwind players to join us at our rehearsals ... We perform concerts at a number of venues.’


‘One of the longest-established amateur orchestras, having been formed immediately after the last war in 1946. We still have founder members in our audience, and many of the orchestra’s current playing members have been with us for twenty, thirty or more years! ... However, we are always happy to welcome new players to the orchestra, especially string players ... Grade VIII is preferable due to the nature of our repertoire.’

‘A voluntary, non-profit-making, group of people, who like to sing. It was created in 2008 to promote and organize adult participation in world music singing workshops and public performances ... Unlike conventional choirs, DTC arranges stand-alone series of workshops, typically 6 sessions, each lasting 2 hours, followed by a performance. By offering these short courses we attract people who might not wish to commit to a full-time choir.’


‘A group of local singers who came together in July 2008 following the very successful TV talent show “Last Choir Standing” ... Since its formation, the choir has gone from strength to strength. We currently have 21 members and enjoy performing around Kent, raising money for local charities and churches. We have also established two smaller groups from within the choir, Front Room Ladies, (performing close harmony numbers) and the Back Room Boys (performing barbershop).’


‘Free concerts take place at the Henry Wellcome Bandstand in Central Park on Sundays throughout the summer from 2pm to around 4pm. Borrow a FREE deckchair or bring your own chair or picnic rug. Refreshments are available from the Cafe in the Park.’
