Opened in 1983 by the Duke of Kent, the Orchard Theatre has been attracting a range of genres and styles through its doors. Ranging from comedians, West End musicals, drama, opera and music, the theatre maintains the area's cultural leanings.

Parking is available in two venues: the Civic Centre car park (just over the footbridge; free after 6pm) and the Orchard Shopping Centre car park (parking charge; closes at midnight).
