Octagon Theatre, Bolton

The Octagon Theatre was officially opened on 27 November 1967 by Princess Margaret. To prepare for the royal arrival, the local council and theatre management had a luxury toilet installed with gold-plated features for their visit (this has since been turned into the theatre’s office space).
