Recently seen Oklahoma and now looking forward to Spirit of the Dance, the Importance of Being Earnest and many others. Joining the premier club is well worth it for priority booking, discounts and other special offers. Only downside... More

Killer Queen are a great tribute band and were great entertainment. A very lively and entertaining evening and a great atmosphere at the Orchard Theatre. Excellent show. Well worth seeing if you are a fan of Queen.

The Orchard Theatre is currently being refurbished with air conditioning being put in, which is very much needed!

During the interval they come round with ice creams and drinks, you... More
