The original construction was of Victorian age which was reconstructed to the current version in 1874, for the next 94 years the only trading there was of cotton merchants. In 1940 a WWII bomb destroyed half of the building 3 days before Christmas. Trading ceased by the end of the 60's and a Theatre company took it over around 1976. In the 1996 the shows did stop at 11-15am on Saturday 15th June, a three thousand three hundred pound bomb ripped the heart out of these evacuated city streets, it was two and a half years until the Theatre opened the doors to the public again.
