About Us

Hope Mill Theatre was the dream of couple Joseph Houston and William Whelton. After training and building a career in theatre and time spent living in London, they were inspired by the highly regarded Off West End Theatres and small producing venues which dominate the London theatre scene.

With this in mind and with growing number of creatives living in Manchester and the ever evolving theatre culture, they set out to bring a brand new theatre experience to the people of Manchester.

Hope Mill Theatre officially opened its doors in November of 2015, and has become one of the most successful and reputable independent venues in England – winning Fringe Venue of The Year at The Stage awards in 2018.
