From 1885 - 2023, Oldham Coliseum Theatre brought joy, entertainment and enrichment to Oldham.

It was thanks to the support of our loyal audiences and generous supporters that we could continue to produce nationally acclaimed work, here in the heart of Oldham. Alongside our work on stage, we worked with people across our communities including: local schools from Oldham, Rochdale and Tameside, including SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) schools for children with additional needs; disadvantaged young people who are not currently in full time work, education or employment; theatre-lovers aged over 50 who come together for creative activities; and a community of artists and theatre makers across the North West.

The Coliseum was a cultural and educational charity that worked with over 150,000 individuals per year. Registered Charity No 508829.

The Coliseum was supported by Arts Council England, Oldham Council and Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA). We received corporate sponsorship from local business interested in helping to promote the arts in the area and supporting the regeneration of Oldham. A much-loved venue that was held in great affection in the town, we also had a growing network of supporters who wanted to become a part of the Coliseum’s exciting story.
