Housed inside the beautiful Derby Hall, a Victorian neo­classical building from the 1840s, the Met is a great venue for local companies such as Lip Service or MaD to flex their creativity. However, the venue's stages reach far beyond drama with a packed programme including folk music, jazz, world music, poetry readings and much more.

Hopefully the new influx of funding will ensure its position in Bury for a long time to come.
