Always find a good variety of performances on at this theatre from Annie, to Blues Brothers tribute band. Prices are reasonable as is the view from everywhere we've sat!

I have visited the Orchard many times and have never been disappointed. Great range of shows and parking at nearby Orchards shopping centre (bit of a queue to pay to leave though). Not enough ladies toilets but that happens in a lot of places There is disabled parking but it's best to book it.

There is wheelchair access to the theatre but I don't think there is a... More

This was my first trip to the Orchard theatre. I went to watch The Rocky Horror show. Was a really good night. The theatre is really nice, clean and there is a bar and restaurant. The only reason I haven't given it top marks is that there isn't much parking.
