Staff are brilliant and helpful couldn't ask for anything more. They let us in early to set up with some new equipment which we are more than thankful for.

We went to see the 'Out of Order' farce on a Thursday evening. The actors were brilliant, but because the theatre was only about half full there was a lack of atmosphere and laughter,

Went to see this great show at the Orchard this evening. The whole production was fantastic, and very professional. The only thing that slightly spoilt our enjoyment was a very horrible, rude little man working on Door B who rudely told us we could not...More

I've sat front row it's great if f you're following a singer but not so good if it's a show.
What's the view like from upper circle and the back end of circle? Thank you

I sat exactly where you are describing and had a perfect view. Just a couple of rows that side so it's not over crowded either
I have booked upper circle AA12/13 online it didn't list it as restricted leg room but the ticket says leg room is reduced. I am over 5'8 please advise.

I'm so sorry but when we visited we were sitting in the front row and there weren't any leg room restrictions. So I'm not sure what about your seats. I'd advise you to give them a call and ask. Good luck!
