Heywood Civic Centre Submitted For Planning

Plans to transform Heywood Civic Centre into a first-class arts and performance venue have moved a step closer, with a planning application now submitted.

The much-loved venue, which opened in the 1960s, will undergo a major revamp to create a modern and flexible space which is accessible to all the community.

The changes will enable the venue to build on the success of its popular events programme, with new opportunities for the community to participate in the arts, as well as the relocation of the local arts organisation, Cartwheel Arts, to a new base in the centre.

These plans will benefit the whole community. They will enable more people than ever before to access arts and culture, and they will also create a vibrant food and drink offer and an attractive focal point within the heart of the town centre.
