Contact Theatre

The Contact Theatre in Manchester, England, started as a traditional theatre but is now anything but. Opened in 1972, Contact Theatre was originally a standard drama venue, but a major redesign in 1999 by architect Alan Short gave the building a distinctive modern look. Now, the building resembles a deconstructed castle. It features turrets and huge stacks crowned with H-shaped chimney pots. Today, the uniquely designed building is home to a wide range of multi-disciplinary arts. It is a venue for everything, from dance, to poetry, to spoken word, to art, and hip-hop.

  • Come to the Contact Theatre for the Monday and Saturday Drop, where young DJs, MCs, actors, and poets from around Manchester get a chance to hone their skills.
  • The Contacting the World Project, enjoy theatre companies from places like Malaysia, Rwanda, Brazil, and Palestine. During this special event, the Contact Theatre is given over to a featured international company.
  • Learn about how to produce a show at the Technique Workshop, where people from around Manchester can learn backstage skills including lighting, stage production, and sound.

Contact Theatre is located close to the city centre of Manchester. There are buses leaving from Piccadilly Gardens station every few minutes that go directly to the theatre. It is also only a ten-minute walk from the Manchester Oxford Road station, the nearest train stop. Taxis in the area are plentiful on show nights so theatregoers should be able to get transport to and from the train station if they don’t want to walk. The First TransPennine Express has direct shuttles from the Manchester Airport to the city centre.
