It’s currently undergoing a major redevelopment, but one of the area’s most acclaimed theatres is all set to open its doors again starting from Saturday 18 July 2020. Octagon theatre Bolton recently outlined plans for its grand relaunch and a new season of plays. A two-day long housewarming party will celebrate the big occasion, featuring tours of the new building and also family activities, such as storytelling and craft sessions. During opening weekend, the venue’s young company will christen the new auditorium with a performance of a specially written new play. In August, the two-week-long Get Creative Festival will feature a host of different events. These include workshops about subjects such as writing, musical theatre and even stage fighting. The new theatre season proper begins in September with a production of the instant comedy classic One Man, Two Guvnors. A mix of plays, both classic and new, follow later in the year and into 2021. Explore the full season line up here.
