Gravesend Entertainment & Musical Society has a deserved reputation for musical excellence and the broad range of music we present.  We have a history stretching back to 1912 and we strive to continue with the traditions of live music.  We have two strings to our bow, the staged musical events and a choir, which is how the Society originally began all those years ago, and each year we are producing concerts and shows for the public.  



GEMS are running a social/fund raiser

It is with great sadness that we announce the recent death of

Audrey Walker.

She had been an important and active member of the Society and its predecessors for many years and a Life Member for all her service

to the Society.

We send our deepest condolences to Audrey's family, friends and

all who knew her.

For those wishing to attend,

the funeral will take on Friday,

A big thank you to everyone involved with our successful Spring Concerts and all who came along to support us  and our chosen charity, ADSS (Alzheimer's & Dementia Support Services).

Our next exciting project will be our staged musical production of Dames At Sea taking place in November 2023.

Please see our Next Production information for further details.



 Our staged musical production of Dames At Sea will take place in November 2023 at the Guild Theatre, Vale Road, Northfleet.  (The show week is 18th-23rd November.)

Rehearsals are held on a Tuesday evening from 7.30 to 9.30pm at Emmanual Baptist Church, Windmill Street, Gravesend (in the large hall to the rear accessed from the Parrock Street Car Park).  Please note, as we are unable to use the Baptist Church on the first Tuesday of each month, these rehearsals will take place at Christ Church, Old Road East, Gravesend.

We look forward to seeing you!
