History
In 1994 the Governors of Dartford Grammar School were advised by Dartford Borough Council that they would be willing to contribute to the funding and community use of a new sports centre being built at the school. The contribution initially agreed was increased on the condition that the Governors provided the school?s existing gymnasium as an arts centre, also to be shared with the community in order to reduce the deficiencies in leisure facilities identified in a report produced for the council by external consultants. At the time there were few or no facilities in the region that were available or suitable for use by local community arts groups, no dedicated live music venue, and no opportunities for local groups and organisations and individuals to develop and showcase their talents.

Following lengthy negotiations with architects, planners, the Arts Council, etc., a more ambitious scheme than originally envisaged was conceived to meet the shortfall in community arts facilities. With the assistance of Arts Council funding of ?1.6m, the then largest lottery award to any school-based project , the ambitious and innovative scheme was started in 1998 and completed in March 2000. It was opened, with national and international publicity, by HRH the Duke of Kent with Mick Jagger and his family in attendance.

At that time the centre comprised a large hall capable of seating 350, a small hall capable of seating 150, both fully equipped with the latest sound and lighting facilities, a professional recording studio and rehearsal rooms, with a large foyer and bar/kitchen as well as a separate box office.

In 2004 the centre was further extended by the addition of a Music Technology suite and store room, a visual arts suite, a dance/drama room and two further teaching and rehearsal areas. The re-siting of the school?s dining hall and kitchen to the centre further added to the range of activities the centre can manage. This extension was opened by the Minister for the Arts, Estelle Morris.
