Just over 50 years old, the Octagon stages adventurous theatre for and from the people of Bolton - from musicals to drama (and everything in between). It's currently undergoing major building works, and will reopen with more space where you can get involved: studios for workshops and courses, a new cafe for meeting and eating, and a better stage for watching and enjoyed. There are online activities, podcasts and writing competitions, too - so you can still get stuck in while the theatre is closed (due to COVID-19).
