Waterside Arts Centre occupies former Sale Civic Theatre, built in 1926. The renovation of the venue as we know it today was finished in 2004. Still, this is a very small centre with just a 350-seat capacity. Right now, Waterside Arts Centre is the meeting spot for many artists, musicians, and other stage performers. Trafford Youth Orchestra has performed in the venue more than once; other established performers that had their shows in the centre are Sale Chamber Orchestra and Touchdown Dance.
Located on 1 Waterside, Sale M33 7ZF, the centre is easily available by several transport means:
