Theatre Orchard’s work spans indoor and outdoor spaces in Weston-super-Mare, and recent venues have included Weston Museum, Old Town Quarry, Uphill Quarry, Italian Gardens and Tropicana.



 The majority of Theatre Orchard’s indoor performance programme focuses on Tropicana, an iconic venue uniquely sited on Weston-super-Mare’s vast sandy beach . Formerly a lido and leisure park with a universal draw from Diana Dors to Haile Selassie, Tropicana shut its doors in 2000 and remained closed until Banksy’s Dismaland in 2015 firmly catapulted it back into life and into the international public eye. Since Dismaland, a broad arts and events programme has continued to keep interest and audiences bubbling.

Tropicana is a fully accessible venue.  Plentiful ticketed parking available along the seafront, and the railway station is 15 minutes walk away.

The recently revamped Italian Gardens can be found at the end of the pedestrianised High Street in Weston town centre and is a great place for spectacular fiestas of outdoor arts and circus, including Weekend of Wonders co-produced by Theatre Orchard and Invisible Circus, bringing  Weston-super-Mare to irrepressible life.

“Theatre Orchard are doing a brilliant job in cementing Weston-super-Mare’s Tropicana as an interesting arts venue. They are bringing independent, challenging productions to this coastal town that is aiming to up its creative game”
