With less than a year before opening next spring the Octagon in Bolton has released two new images of the interior of the new theatre.

The Octagon Reimagined project will set the stage for the next 50 years, transforming the building, updating backstage facilities, increasing accessibility and enabling a wider reach of community work.

The new purpose-built studio will be home to the Octagon’s youth and community drama groups. The multi-purpose space will also host a programme of new theatre giving opportunities for new writing and emerging artists to share their work with Bolton audiences.
