Illuminating People and Places through Live Arts
We are passionate about promoting live performance. We love North Somerset’s amazing array of indoor and outdoor spaces. Stages that may be small or large, enclosed or without walls – unique places to perform, that have something for everyone.
We present work ranging from local to international performance connecting with people and places. Whether it’s ballet on the pier, circus on the streets, pint-sized performance in a pub or theatre in an empty shop, Theatre Orchard enables diverse stories to be told in inspirational settings.
We also provide opportunities for local people to get stuck in. Why not volunteer with Theatre Orchard and help shape and deliver North Somerset’s performing arts programme? Or take part in a community project – find your voice, and share your skills with us.
Theatre Orchard partners with many individuals and companies on its journey to transform North Somerset into a region that is an increasingly dynamic, playful and stimulating place to live, work and visit.

Without Walls Touring Network Partnership
Theatre Orchard is delighted to announce an exciting new partnership with Without Walls, England’s biggest network of outdoor arts festivals.
Theatre Orchard is the only arts organisation in North Somerset and one of just two in the South West region to
become a partner of the Without Walls Touring Network Partnership, a project that tours high-quality outdoor shows for free, to selected towns and cities across England. We will work with 35 other partners as part of an England-wide network of festivals and arts organisations, bringing more opportunities for people in North Somerset to experience fantastic art performances.
“We are delighted to have Theatre Orchard join Without Walls. We know audiences will enjoy our world-class shows and feel they are part of something magical happening in North Somerset.”

“This was such a poignant event, which moved and meant so much to so many people in our local community. It was a real privilege for our students to collaborate with the Theatre Orchard and the Holly Noble Dance company in putting on this performance.”
