Darton Darby & Joan Club situated in Darton, Barnsley was founded in 1954 to provide facilities for recreation and leisure in the interests of social welfare with the object of improving the conditions of life of residents of the then Darton Urban District.
In 1968 plans were drawn up to move into new premises on land that had been donated to the Darby & Joan Club and the village raised the money for the building of the hall.
The Darby & Joan Club is a charity that is registered with the Charity Commision.
The Club is available for hire 7 days a week whether this is a one-off party booking or a regular booking. Have a look at our calendar for availability.
Darton Darby & Joan and Nova Theatre Group who are based at the Darby & Joan are raising funds to purchase a Community Public Access Defibrillator (CPADS).
At present the centre of Darton does not have such a device so they are trying to raise at least £2500 to be able to purchase and install one outside the Darby & Joan where it will be sited for both the shops and the park.
On Saturday 22nd June, The Darby & Joan and Nova Theatre Group will be holding a Summer Fayre at the Darby & Joan to raise funds for the project, where Yorkshire Ambulance Service will be in attendance to explain the benefits of a defibrillator. Then on Friday 12th July at 7pm they will be holding a Race Night also at the Darby & Joan and tickets are on sale at £5 each and include pie & peas.
