Adults

Interested in seeing, making and performing theatre? Meet like-minded people, develop skills and have new experiences by taking part in our adult programme at the Octagon.

Each week we deliver groups for older adults, adults with additional needs and women from refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds. The Octagon is also home to several independent groups who are open to new members.

Please note that, during our building re-development, all of our groups will take place at our temporary home in Bolton’s The Marketplace Shopping Centre (Upper Ground Floor, next to Debenhams).
