The Winding Wheel Theatre In Days Gone By
Originally the Winding Wheel was a picture house that was built in 1923. Then, it became an Odeon cinema just a few years later in 1936. The Odeon held its ground for many years right up until 1981 when, as can be seen, it became a theatre. Consequently, the Winding Wheel is still in use today and remains a theatre.
Further, it’s quite unusual in its external appearance. To demonstrate, its facade is a half-timbered painted black and white, so it certainly catches the eye.
You can find the Winding Wheel theatre in Chesterfield, Derbyshire (see the address below). Also probably worth mentioning, is that it’s currently a grade II-listed theatre.
At the present time, the Winding Wheel has three rooms which are regularly used for events and these are – the Auditorium, Ballroom and Function Room. The Winding Wheel has a diverse programme of events including West End musicals, stand-up comedy, music concerts, talks and a wide range of community events.
There is a constant stream of events taking place at the Winding Wheel Theatre. Many of which you will find on our website. However, if you would like to take a look at the official website please click on the link below.
