The Plaza was restored in recent years after being closed for a long time further to a stint as a bingo hall. As such it is now largely run by volunteers. The interior is gorgeous and in the Art Deco style. A highlight is the tea room on the first floor. Don't visit if you are in a rush as... More

Gorgeous art deco theatre. In recent times it's been restored to former glory and the afternoon tea is divine. A definite must visit for anybody coming to Stockport!

A lovely theatre. They do a great behind the scenes tours. Try a tour and take tea in the art deco cafe upstairs beautiful. Shows and great film nights. The theatre has been done in the original style including replica stage curtain. This was recreated from photos of the original. Hear the organ. You won't be disappointed.

Expensive food but I understand you are paying for the whole experience. Unfortunately this was not good; poor service, cold drinks, and a long wait for food. There are much better venues providing this type of experience at a more reasonable price with much better service.

The plaza is an amazing building they have put so much effort into restoring it to its former glory and it has all paid off. The shows they puy on vary from cinema films to adult comedy shows and plenty of family shows like there amazing Christmas pantomime. They all so do a coffee morning sometimes on a saterday morning... More

Well to be more precise 4x 330ml bottle of Stella plus 2x double martini's for £32! Come on Plaza leave the jokes for the stage. At those prices you don't need to rely on volunteers to staff the theatre! 1930's theatre charging futuristic 22nd century prices. Heavily restored the theatre has lost some of it's charm in the process to... More

Loved the art decor surroundings. Shame that they are very inflexible and would not let us put two tables together to create nine seats. Also would not add cheese sandwiches to a vegetarian afternoon tea. The pots of tea arrived at least half an hour before the food so was therefore cold when the food arrived and no hot water...

Having last visited the Plaza to see a film as a kid, I was delighted to see how it has been done up when invited by a lovely couple to do their wedding at the venue. The staff were enthusiastic and passionate about the Plaza itself and it was ideal for the occasion and showed potential for many sorts of... More

So much has been put into the plaza, it is worth a visit. Volunteers are a big contributor, so hats off to them
