We are the Octagon

We believe theatre matters because everyone’s story matters and aim to entertain, inspire and engage as many people as possible through theatre. We are leaders in ensuring arts and culture thrive in Bolton working with thousands of young people and community groups every year.

The Octagon reopened in May 2021 following a major redevelopment, funded by Bolton Council and Arts Council England. The redevelopment is the largest transformation of the building in the Octagon’s history and will ensure the future of the Theatre for generations to come.
