I have visited this theatre a number of times, it is a beautiful theatre restored to it's former glory in artdeco style. The staff are always very welcoming and helpful. Most are volunteers. Can't wait to go back always a pleasure!!

Our visit to Stockport Plaza was something of an accident, as circumstances dictated that we were unable to see the show locally, and Stockport was the closest venue where we could get tickets. The theatre is beautifully restored, and is like being transported into the past. The organist rising from the 'pit' in front of the stage to play prior... More

I love the decor and atmosphere in The Plaza. I believe that the staff all volunteer and this commitment shines through. There is a great stage, there is variety of shows and events well worth looking up. It is centrally located and easily accessible by rail or bus. If you are visiting during the day, do make sure you visit... More

A great evening can be had here. Get in early to see the renovated 'deco' interior. I have seen several films and 'live' films of opera plus real shows, all of which have had me leaving with a smile on my face. If peckish during the day the food upstairs is fine and gives a taste of what a tea... More

The plaza cafe is a must. You are taken back in time as you are greeted by the manager who shows you to a table where you are waited on by delightful plazarettes . The food is excellent. Enjoy tea with your own strainer- takes me back to childhood. Afternoon tea is highly recommended. Grandmas and great grandmas will love... More

Went here in May 2013 to see Phil Cool the show was fantastic. The plaza was very clean and tidy. Before the show we went downstairs to the bar for refreshments. Staff were very polite

These tours operate at 11am on the last Monday of the month. The cost is £6 and the tour lasts about 1.5 hours. The tour guides are volunteers, whose knowledge of the history of the building is amazing. Their enthusiasm is infectious! They clearly love what they do and are passionate about preserving the theatre for future generations. On the... More
