A community led space managing to produce and attract some really excellent theatre


Described by The Guardian as 'the most revitalised regional theatre in the country', The Octagon Theatre continues to produce excellent work inside its main mid­size theatre and studio space.

The main space is one of the theatre's greatest assets. Its flexibility allows for work in all formats – end stage, in the round, thrust – so that the presentation of work is as varied as the work itself. Visiting productions sit easily alongside those from the Octagon itself, and the main shows are supplemented with music and comedy, talks, special events and a very successful youth programme.

Over 150,000 visitors each year enjoy everything from 'Journey's End' to 'Mother Courage', and The Octagon has its roots firmly planted in its hometown, making opportunities available to local people to audition via its Community Company. Here, absolutely zero acting experience won't necessarily be a barrier to joining in, making the Octagon a place where community engagement is far more than just a bolt­ on.
