A great theatre putting on great shows. Having trod the boards there myself 30 years ago it is always a pleasant place to visit and feels like home .. great raking of the seats and excellent views from most.

Ticket prices are what we’ve all come to expect from anywhere you go these days, what I feel should be addressed are the over-priced bar and snack prices. For example an average bags of chocolate you’d buy from any supermarket for £1, the Orchard we’re charging £3.30, that’s quite a mark-up.

We had booked a meal so we could get seats with more leg room. See my separate review of the meal ("Simply Awful"). The seats did NOT have extra leg room, so we managed to move to back of stalls for a better seat for my arthritic knees. The seats and theatre were otherwise nice, and the show (Sleeping Beauty ballet) was great.

On our last visit we had a terrible experience with our pre-booked seats, we found to our surprise a couple already seated in them when we suggested they had the wrong seats they told us they had been double booked and so we should speak to management as we were going to be offered alternative seats, the duty manager didn’t want to know saying we needed to speak with the ticket office, by now the performance had started and the ticket office just said there was nothing they could do as letters should have been sent out to inform us of the change due to a refurbishment! Won’t be in a hurry to go back!
