Buy a Brick

The Octagon is being reimagined one brick at a time.

The original ‘buy a brick’ campaign in 1967 raised the funding needed to begin the Octagon story.

Fifty years on we are asking you, our audience and the Bolton community, to make history again and continue the Octagon story.

All brick donors will be invited to attend an exclusive opening event to see the new theatre spaces.

Bronze: from £50

If you would like to buy a brick as a gift, please let us know and we can arrange the gift certificate in the recipients name. 

Don't forget to Gift Aid it! You can boost your brick donation by 25% at no extra cost to yourself.
As a registered charity we can reclaim Gift Aid from the tax you pay. It doesn’t cost you anything – it’s just a great way of deciding where some of the tax you’re already paying goes!
