Hopwood Theatre

Passion is pursued and stars are born at our dazzling Hopwood Theatre! With a capacity to welcome 110 people at our Middleton Campus, it’s a state of the art space for stage productions – complete with all the lights, camera and audio equipment needed to put on a professional show.

Through the academic year it’s a teaching and rehearsal space for our talented learners studying Performing Arts and Dance. However, it’s also adaptable as an event space where external parties can host conferences, presentations and more.

The general public can get their peek behind the curtain during one of the star-studded productions put on by students throughout the year. You’ll find everything from musicals and fashion shows to pantomimes and plays taking place!


When our students put on a production, tickets are extremely sought-after from people from all across Greater Manchester. Due to this, we’d always recommend buying yours early to avoid disappointment.

The performers will often go on to some of the most high profile stage schools in the country – so you won’t want to miss seeing their talents in this intimate setting before they go on to grace film, television and theatres across the world!
