Coronavirus: Suspended performances at the Orchard Theatre

Updated: 11 October 2021, 3.38pm

Events at the Orchard Theatre that were scheduled to take place before and including Monday 30 August 2021 have been suspended.

Some shows beyond this date may also be subject to suspension or rescheduling. 

The Orchard Theatre building and box office are temporarily closed.  

Welcoming you back

We’re ready to welcome you back when restrictions are lifted and are aiming to open again with events at full capacity from 31 August 2021.  Read more

Advice For Ticket Holders

We are working to reschedule as many of the affected performances as we can. Inevitably this will not be possible for all events - and some shows will not be rescheduled.

This event list will be updated regularly.

These procedures apply for all bookings made direct with the venue. If you booked through a third party agency (Ticketmaster, See Tickets etc.) please contact them directly.

The new dates for performances that have been rescheduled so far are listed above.

My show is not being rescheduled – what should I do?

We will email all ticket holders confirming that your booking will be reimbursed through a voucher credit system. Your voucher will be sent to you by email.

If you haven’t received a voucher, and your event is listed as ‘not rescheduled’ in the affected events list you need to let us know by completing a form.

My event is marked as pending – what should I do?

Nothing. We will contact you by email as soon as the status of shows is confirmed. We will also update affected events list.
