Octagon Theatre

The Octagon is a producing theatre that produces popular, bold and adventurous theatre of the highest quality for the people of Bolton and beyond.

The town centre building is currently undergoing a multi-million pound redevelopment and the theatre is producing a series of shows and activities in venues across Bolton before the new building opens in 2020.

The redevelopment is the largest transformation of the building in the Octagon’s 50 year history and will ensure the future of the Theatre for generations to come.

The Northern at Bolton's Albert Halls offers a pre-theatre dining for shows at the Octagon Theatre.



Following the recent government advice, The Northern is now closed until further notice. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and would like to thank our customers for their support at this difficult time. We hope to be back operating as soon as we possibly can.

If you would like to be kept up to date about our reopening plans, please leave your email address below.

For now, stay home, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
