Oldham Theatre Plans on display

04 July 2023

Proposals are on display for a brand-new theatre for Oldham that will become a key part of a new-look town centre, providing a more modern, accessible venue for performers and audiences from Oldham and beyond.

Plans for the £24m theatre relate to a series of heritage buildings in Oldham’s Cultural Quarter and include the Grade II Listed former post office, former museum building, and the former Friends’ Meeting House.

Councillor Arooj Shah, Leader of Oldham Council, said: “We are working hand-in-hand with the Oldham Coliseum, Arts Council and other cultural partners to shape these plans and, together, provide a theatre to be proud of and one that can support the Coliseum’s future as a thriving producing theatre company".

The proposed designs have been shaped through The Big Oldham Conversation, by visiting future generations of theatregoers, artists and entertainment professionals in Oldham’s schools and colleges to find out what they wanted.
