Pinocchio
Dec 2019
Very attractive venue with cheerful staff.who try very hard to please;
We came to see "Pinocchio" which was a very lively performance by a very young enthusiastic cast with lots of energy, An enjoyable production.
It has a good cafe which provides a range of simple food and caters very well for children.
The Orchard centre car park is nearby and is free for the first 2 hours and you just pay for any excess time.

Great place with so much on offer

Went to watch a cookery demonstration with a differene. Fabulous show, staff so welcoming and the theatre is bright and airy. All seats give good viewing and the bar is great. The cafe serves delicious salads in the day, there are free exhibitions and the theatre put on such a range of shows - something for everyone. Easy parking at The Orchard Centre too.

Great little venue
Apr 2019 • Friends
First time here for a concert. Building looks modern, bright & clean and so are the toilets (always a good sign). Seating is quite steeply tiered which gives everyone a good view over the head of the person in front, small and intimate and there’s enough knee room. Friendly staff too. Bar was busy at the interval but there’s free water so if you’re thirsty you don’t have to queue. Good experience!

King and I
Apr 2019 • Friends
Watched The King and I at Cornerstone, Didcot this evening. Fantastic performance by the whole cast for singing, dancing and performance with great direction and music. Terrific and well done, and an especially powerful performance and solos by Helena Kerswell.
Buy your tickets for Saturday. Very enjoyable.

Cornerstones - A great venue
Dec 2018 • Family
Really enjoy going to this venue to watch the comedians, theatre and different variety groups and solo artists.Talking of artists, the gallery which show the work of talented artist is a bonus. All topped off with easy access to good local wines and ales makes for a really enjoyable evening's entertainment.

Love this place!! A real gem at the heart of Didcot.

We try to pop into the Cornerstone whenever we’re in Didcot - the café is pleasant with nice, wholesome food (and good veggie/vegan options) and staff are friendly. We also like to see the changing exhibitions and local crafts for sale.

Today we saw the play ‘About a Bot’ which was fabulous! Captivating for all the family (from ages 5 to 50) and Betti, the robot, was a super actor. Also proved a great introduction to some deep and thought-provoking world issues.

Thank you for another great Didcot day out!
