Owner description: Chorley Little Theatre is a volunteer-run independent venue staging plays, musicals, pantos, touring comedy, music and films.Built in 1910, it has been owned and operated by amdram group CADOS since 1960 and produces at least 6 full shows per year, plus 2 by Chorley Youth Theatre. It's an ideal venue for comedy shows by top stand-up comedians, and the regular film showings are digitally projected on to the big screen, with Surround Sound.There's a great-priced bar and the building has full disabled access. Any profits go back into the upkeep of the building, and all income comes from ticket and bar sales.

“a little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

My first ever visit and was really impressed. A small and intimate venue to watch a show. The bar is nicely furnished with extremely reasonable prices. The prices for ice cream, sweets and soft drink also excellent - not like the usall rip off you get in theatres and cinemas. The only fault as such is the inadequate toilet facilitlies but that can be forgiven.

“This Theatre is just Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

We have been to this Theatre many times over the years and seen many and various shows including Plays, Pantomimes, Various Artists and bands etc. When attending the shows the place is very intimate and you feel you are part of the show. All the seating has good views of the stage and there is also a Bar area were you can relax before and after the show with prices very reasonable. We could highly reccomend this venue to anyone
