HOW TO FIND US!

DARTFORD WORKING MEN'S (CIU) CLUB,
40 Essex Road,
Dartford, DA1 2AU.


HOW TO GET THERE BY RAIL

Dartford Railway Station is within ten minutes walk of the venue.
On leaving the station, turn right and walk past the Station car park on your left. Continue down the slipway and steps to the pedestrian crossing. Cross the road and turn left heading towards the main traffic lights. Cross the road at these lights and immediately turn right along Westgate Road. (Pizza Hut and B&Q will now be on your right on the other side of the road.) Take the first turning on the left which is Kent Road. (Kwik Fit is on the opposite side). Continue past the Westgate public car park on your left to the Air & Breathe Nightclub on your right, where you need to turn immediately right into Essex Road.
The Dartford Working Men's (CIU) Club will be on your left.

HOW TO GET THERE BY ROAD

Dartford Town Centre has an amazing and ever changing road system! To direct traffic to the club is a challenge in itself!
If you have a Sat Nav, you will need to enter the building number (40) as well as the postcode (DA1 2AU) as Essex Road is now split in two by Westgate Road.
The best land mark for the Folk Club is Prospect Place Retail Park, which includes Pizza Hut and B&Q, and is on Westgate Road. You need to be in Kent Road, a one way street next to Kwik Fit, and almost opposite the Retail Park. Once in Kent Road, go past the car park on the left and then turn right into Essex Road, immediately after the Air & Breathe nightclub. The Dartford Working Men's (CIU Affiliated) Club is just up this road on the left hand side.

WHERE TO PARK

Please note there is very limited parking available outside the club.
The new Westgate surface Car Park NO LONGER OFFERS FREE PARKING. Please check notices for evening charges. From here, you need to cross the road and walk up Essex Road to the Club which will be on the left. Alternatively you can park in the Prospect Place Retail Car Park, near to Pizza Hut, where there is UP TO 4 HOURS FREE PARKING between 6.00 pm and midnight. Once parked, all you need to do is cross Westgate Road and walk up Junction Road. This will bring you into Essex Road almost opposite the Working Men's Club.

HOW TO GET IN!

DARTFORD FOLK CLUB is held in the main function room of DARTFORD WORKING MEN'S (CIU) CLUB.
There is an electronic key entry system for members of the Dartford Working Men's Club only, so you will need to ring the bell for the bar staff or Club Steward to let you in. The Folk Club is held in the room, directly across the main lounge and through the double doors. It is then through the doors immediately on your right.
If you are not a CIU-affiliate member, you will be asked by one of the Folk Club regulars to sign the Guest book. Both male and female guests are required to sign in! This is merely to comply with the licensing regulations and will not cost you any more!
YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A MEMBER OF THE WORKING MEN'S CLUB, CIU, OR THE FOLK CLUB TO ATTEND!!

REFRESHMENTS

The bar area in the Function Room is not used on Folk Club nights so please use the bar in the main lounge to purchase any drinks and snacks. A selection of hot drinks is also available! In line with the law, smoking is not allowed anywhere on the premises. However, railings have been installed at the front of the building, together with tables and umbrellas, to provide a designated smoking area.

JUST A THOUGHT - It is much appreciated by many of the audience and the performers if you would kindly wait until the end of a song before you come in or go out of the Folk Club! Thank you!

Should you get completely lost on the night, the venue only telephone number is 01322 223646. (For booking and other enquiries, etc. - please see our 'How to contact us' page.)
