“Ticket prices - Hidden charge”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The Orchard adds a £1.50 per ticket "ticket charge" when you book your tickets. Why do they not simply add it to the quoted ticket prices to give a true cost?
Don't forget to allow another £2.00 per ticket (not per booking) if you want the tickets posted to you.
Only discovered this when using gift voucher that was present from my son. Had to add £7 to the voucher to cover additional charges in order to book 2 seats, very disappointing.

“quality venue close to home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

I often visit the Orchard Theater and always come away having experienced good quality talent in a comfortable environment. The price is fair and then you don't have the travel expenses to London.Going to see Our House tomorrow evening. Saw jersey nights in October absolutely stunning show. Had me up and dancing.

“Good theatre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Went to see Joseph on tour. Great show in a lovely little theatre - we had a great view of the stage. Only downside is that the seats are not very comfortable!
