The Outside Track had an absolutely wonderful time at Playhouse 2! What a warm welcome we received and a fantastic sold out crowd! A fabulous way to finish off our tour!

Shaw Playhouse 2 was a highlight of our tour. The acoustics are perfect for our kind of amplified music and it was a pleasure from the sound check to the encore. The layout is ideal for a venue of its size and made for a great, intimate ambience with every member of the audience comfortably seated and with a perfect view of all the band. We can't wait to come back!'

"Enjoyed tonight.It was a brilliant play, so funny. Well done, I cant wait until next play."
Ann Roddy via Facebook.
Over the many years that the band has been touring and playing, we have unfortunately witnessed the slow yet significant demise of small and independent venues across the UK. Oldham is very lucky indeed to have The Playhouse2 at the heart of it's city. It is a venue that should be celebrated and cherished for it's intimate yet relaxed setting, all situated in a beautiful, newly refurbished theatre that hosts a state-of the art PA system. It is safe to say that The Playhouse2 is one of England's rare gems and undoubtably a perfect setting for watching and listening to live music. We had a great show with a wonderful audience who all helped in making the evening truly memorable, we all look forward to returning soon! "
"The Churchfitters were delighted to discover the wonderful Playhouse2. It's layout and size give just the right combination of intimacy and comfort to make it an ideal venue from the point
of view of both the audience and the band, and the warmth and good humour of the volunteers was really welcoming. - Can't wait to come back!"
Rosie Short, The Churchfitters
"The Dobcross players and supporters always look forward to their visits to
Playhouse 2, a delightful theatre with its own unique character where we are sure of a warm welcome and an appreciative audience."
Andy Black, Band Chairman, Dobcross Silver Band.
