Great show. Great theatre. Definitely will return to this venue. Only downside is the theatre seats could do with upgrading, mine had a big dent and with back problems was very uncomfortable.

We went to see Spamalot. The seats werent great but as there were better empty seats the kind lady got us to move. The bar staff were friendly too. To be fair Ive never had a bad time at the Orchard. Thank you.

Saw this brilliant show last night. Starring Joe Pascale as Frank Spencer. He was excellent. So were the rest of the cast. The audience laughed all through the performance.

For some reason we didn’t enjoy this show. We obviously didn’t get the concept of musical as there was too much music for us lol! We had really good seats but 2 of the 4 of us were very uncomfortable. I have no explanation.

Because it's a cosy auditorium, I have found, that all the seats without any note of a restricted view have been fine, even right at the back.
