Stockport Plaza is worth a visit in its own right, not just for the entertainment. We've been going for a few years now and are always amazed with the amazing Art Deco interior. (Christmas films are always special, they play Christmas songs on the organ followed by classic cartoons before the feature)

Once again a fantastic night out at a wonderful theatre. Thanks National Lottery. Tonight Milton Jones, last time it was Mickey Flanagan. Yes sometimes the acts could headline an arena. The theatre is run by volunteers, predominantly the over 60s. I can't wait until I retire because I want to find time to volunteer myself. Whether it is a boy... More

An excellent theatre that has been restored to it's former glory. Comfortable seating with plenty of legroom. Good atmosphere and friendly helpful staff. Makes a visit to the theatre a pleasure.

We have been to see several shows over the last year or so since it was renovated and have always found the staff and the atmosphere in the place great.

We purchased tickets to go and watch Ken Dodd with my grandparents and we bought second tier seats thinking we'd be able to clearly see and be out of the way. OH NO! We could see but we couldn't hear a word he was saying, it's not that we couldn't understand him, it's the fact that the microphone wasn't turned... More

Went to Easter panto, Beauty and the Beast, with grand daughter. Firstly the venue - such a fabulous Art Deco building carefully restored. The restaurant was like stepping back in time and the main auditorium was so lovely. It was brilliant to go to a theatre which was of interest before the show started. The staff are volunteers and clearly... More
