The Octagon in Bolton has given a first look inside its new building following a two-year, £12 million redevelopment.

The venue has seen the modernisation of the entire building with updated performance spaces, participation facilities and front-of-house areas and expanded backstage facilities.

The reopening date is yet to be confirmed.

Since it closed last March, the Octagon has continued to connect with the community by moving its programme to digital online platforms.

Thanks to public support, the Future Fund public fundraising appeal has raised £84,697.48.
