By kindly donating, you’re helping us to secure a bright future for your theatre, the last surviving professional producing theatre here in Oldham. Every donation makes a difference; and adding GiftAid will add an extra 25p for every £1 you donate, at absolutely no cost to you.

It is thanks to the support of our loyal audiences and generous supporters that we can continue to produce nationally acclaimed work, here in the heart of Oldham. Alongside our work on stage the Coliseum works with schools from Oldham, Rochdale and Tameside, children with additional needs; disadvantaged young people; theatre-lovers aged over 50 who come together for creative activities; and a community of artists and theatre makers across the North West.

Your support will help us to:

  • Sustain ambitious, top-quality theatre produced right here in Oldham
  • Give the next generation of home grown talent – writers, actors, producers – that first, vital step in their careers
  • Bring the magic of theatre – watching and taking part – to young and old alike, transforming their lives and well being.

Your Coliseum Needs You to help keep theatre alive in Oldham. We need your help to protect the Coliseum’s great history and continue to serve Oldham and its communities for generations to come.
