That’ll Be The Day, back by popular demand, rocks into The Orchard Theatre

Group Encore Main

That’ll Be The Day is all about nostalgia and live entertainment, reflecting the music and tone of an era that changed the course of music history and youth culture forever. Incredibly the show is now in its 30th year of touring, get ready for a party as the nation’s favourite variety show returns to The Orchard Theatre on Tuesday 22 March!

That’ll Be The Day is back on the road entertaining audiences with classic gold hits from the 1950s, 60s and 70s and includes more hilarious comedy!

Despite performing as many as 230 shows a year to capacity audiences across the UK, Trevor Payne (who created the show back in 1987!) still directs, produces and stars in the production today. Trevor rewrites the material for the show for each tour and over six months is taken in planning and preparation – culminating in a month of intensive rehearsals before the show once again takes to the road with its new offering every year!

That’ll Be The Day is renowned for its work with worthy causes, particularly BT Childline, Help For Heroes and more recently Make-A-Wish Foundation® UK.

Make-A-Wish® has a single purpose – to grant magical wishes to children and young people aged 3-17 fighting life-threatening conditions.  Wishes can range from being a princess for the day, meeting a hero or going on a once in a life-time holiday. There are currently 20,000 children and young people in the UK fighting a life-threatening condition, and Make-A-Wish believes every one of them deserves to experience the magic of a Make-A-Wish wish.

“We are truly delighted to be supporting Make-A-Wish. The tireless work they do with children across the UK is inspirational and we look forward to a long and fruitful association with this amazing charity” – Trevor Payne.

The show will be at The Orchard Theatre on Tuesday 22 March at 7.30pm. Pre-show dining is also available before the show. The Orchard Theatre’s Restaurant provides a range of delicious, unique and memorable dishes, using the freshest local produce and prepared daily by the Head Chef.  Reserve your table when booking your show tickets.
