I went to see Sally Morgan here, with my Sister and my Daughter and a really great night. The theatre was just the right size for such an event. We ordered pre-paid interval drinks as we went in and they were waiting for us as promised, lovely, no standing waiting at the bar. Lots of easy free parking. Would easily... More

I've visited the theatre numerous times both in my capacity as a Parent Governor of Redwood School and as a family. I find access can sometimes be a little difficult with a wheelchair but the staff are always on hand to guid you to the small lift that allows wheelchair users to access the theatre. Attending award giving ceremonies is... More

Only theatre in Rochdale and is not in the town centre. Attached to Oulder Hill School. The theatre itself is big enough. The productions are few and far between. One pantomime a year and a few comedians, not much else.

Hello, Thank you for your review. Even though we are outside of the town centre, we enjoy good transport links. We also benefit from a large, well lit and free parking facility. We have a number of events throughout the year, an annual pantomime, annual musical production presented by Rochdale Amateur Operatic Society, as well as a number of comedians... More

It is good Rochdale retains a cultural venue, and every year there are worthwhile concerts and performances. The auditorium is okay and the atmosphere usually good. It is a little outside of the centre of town, but is well signposted and has good parking (it is reasonably easy to get nearby by bus).

They put on some great productions at very reasonable prices - bar area and small shop for sweets etc. I wish someone would give it a facelift as it's a bit tired now - a vital part of the local community though

I've never ever been disappointed by any of the shows at the Gracie Fields Theatre. It's in a great spot, plenty of parking, friendly staff and all the seats are good.
