Overview

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.

The local theater provides good plays of an above average standard. Other forms of entertainment are also provided and it is well worth checking out their website

Went to see Kerry Godliman, what a great little theatre. Seats are clean as is the theatre. This is a small venue, which is great to see a show as you can actually see the act. I will defiantly be visiting this venue again.
