the Plaza is part of Stockport's heritage and retains a faithful following amongst theatre-goers of all ages, putting on variety shows , the likes of Ken Dodd to name but one. Also a promoter of local talent !! An excellent venue in keeping with an "old-fashioned" ambience ...well liked !

I had the pleasure of photographing the wonderful wedding of Mr & Mrs Pickles at the venue on 5th July 2015. Habit never photographed a wedding at a theatre before, I was somewhat looking forward to the experience. The wedding took place on the stage and it was truly magical, from the curtain rising on the groom and the bride... More

I've been here many times and love how it still has its period look. The staff are super helpful, it's easily accessed for wheelchair users and the toilet facilities are kept very clean. Suits all ages with its various showings and also has a period tea room. The only thing negative I have to say is the price I had... More

Having grown up with the Plaza I think it's wonderful that it has been completely renovated and refurbished in the Art Décor design it was originally built in. Absolutely Fabulous, venue.

Had a lovely afternoon tea at the Plaza. The food was good and plenty of it-so much so we had to take cakes home. Made even better as there was a thirties weekend on so there were tours of the theatre. Would definitely recommend.

This was where I went as a child to watch lots of films now it has been restored to its original glory and recently I went to see some old tamla motown legends on the stage the theatre has had a great deal of money spent on it and with the help of many volunteers is well worth a visit.

The plaza are not only there for the panto season! They offer movie nights and shows too! From Monty Python to Laurel and Hardy check it out. They even do ice cream half way through just like when I was a lad ! Try it out.
