Home » To do & see » Roundabout pops-up in Ordsall Park

Award-winning pop-up theatre, Roundabout returns to Salford for a fourth year, this time making its home in Ordsall Park.

Over four days the travelling venue will showcase three plays from Paines Plough, as well as hosting comedy from Barbara Nice, community events and church services.

Actor, Katherine Pearce recently received a highly acclaimed ‘The Stage Edinburgh Award’ for her performance in ‘Island Town’ at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe.

She reprises her award-winning role in the play by Simon Longman, a bittersweet story about friendship, hope and dreams of an escape. Playing 8 characters across the three plays, Katherine can also be seen in ‘Sticks and Stones’ by Vinay Patel, a satire about what happens when the wrong word just slips out; and ‘How to Spot an Alien’ by Georgia Christou, about one confused alien, two brave kids and a busted spaceship.

As well as high quality acts the portable venue promises the full-theatre experience with cutting edge sound and lighting, comfortable seats and a great view of the stage. It is also fully wheelchair accessible, with four wheelchair spaces available and located on a step-free site. There is also space to store buggies.

Roundabout has a built in T-Loop available for every performance and personal assistants are entitled to a free ticket.


Previously Roundabout has popped-up at Little Hulton Goes Large festival (2017), Love Eccles Festival (2016) and The Lowry Plaza (2015).
Tickets to all plays are £5 and many of the community events are free.

Roundabout is at Ordsall Park from Thu 6 – Sun 9 September 2018. Visit The Lowry website for full details.
