Filming opportunities

​In light of the current situation, Rochdale Town Hall is closed. It will reopen on government advice when safe to do so. It will then close again on 1 January 2021 so we can renovate the building. We can't consider filming requests while the building is closed. We expect filming opportunities to be available again in 2023.


The Grand Staircase

The Town Hall makes a stunning location for both film and photographic shoots. Most recently, it has been used for scenes in the final episode of the BBC drama, Our Zoo.

The incredibly detailed Victorian design provides a backdrop suitable for Hollywood blockbusters and magazine photo shoots alike. Features such as the grand staircase, intricate carvings and stunning artwork create a real stand-out location.

Take a virtual tour of the Town Hall and set your imagination running free.
