The architects of the building were Bradshaw Gass & Hope; the slightly Gothic features were intended to relate to the adjacent Gothic style vestry hall which has since been demolished.[2] The theatre was originally a concert hall, built as part of the town hall extension, which was officially opened by the Duke of York on 22 June 1932.[3] A pipe organ made by John Compton with three manuals was installed at the time the concert hall opened.[3]

Main theatre

The Broadway Theatre is particularly noted for presenting a wide range of black theatre.[4]
