Saw La Cage Aux Folles on 10/5/17. The show was brilliant and venue was great. The cast were superb. Third time I've seen this show, and each time is good.

Went to see Al Murray, and had a wonderful time. Shops nearby, good parking, and a restaurant upstairs. Good times were had.

I go to The Orchard quite a lot, sometimes with friends and sometimes on my own. There are many good shows throughout the year. I have a Premier card as I go often and it is well worth having

Great for a good night out. if you live local I'd recommend their premier card (about £30 per year) to save loads on tickets and early booking. Easy parking close by and lots of pubs and restaurants nearby for before or after show.

The Orchard is something all of us in Dartford can be proud of, it's a theatre that would give any London one a run for its money. The shows are great quality and value. I have seen Derren Brown Infamous here and Buddy Holly musical,...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!
