Located in the grounds of the old Chorlton Methodist Church, The Edge Theatre and Arts Centre is a community focused venue for theatre and creative workshops.
Since launching in 2011 the 70 seat theatre venue hosts both touring productions and their own in-house creations, as well as the occasional stand up comedy event or discussion. The theatre’s high arched ceiling and large floor stage makes for a unique location to watch newly created productions, and the three studio spaces regularly play host to classes and workshops for people of all ages — from singing, dancing and drawing for adults to youth theatre groups for children.
The theatre aims to support those in the beginning of their acting career, holding audition classes and providing rehearsal rooms for new productions. The Edge is also home to a number of community projects, working with unemployed and disabled people to introduce them to the arts. The Dressing Room cafe is also a great location for a pre-theatre meal or a quick coffee.
