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.

Visited with a small group of friends and was fascinated with the building and the atmosphere. We saw Billy Liar and the casting was perfect. Grandma and Billy stole the show. Will certainly be going again.

A lovely theatre run by an enthusiastic team of volunteers. We saw Educating Rita and the play was well staged and as there were only two actors they still managed to captivate the audience. Would definitely return and recommend this as a place to visit.
