Coronavirus: Suspended performances at the Orchard Theatre

Updated: 14 July 2020, 4:41pm

Events at the Orchard Theatre that were scheduled to take place before and including 27 September 2020 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.  

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) please contact them directly.
