I went to the school next door (Stockport Grammar School), and in the late 1960’s we used to have our “Speech Day” (prizegiving etc.) there. My best memory is of the whole school waiting for the guests to appear on stage, when out of the pit rose out elderly music teacher (name?) playing the Compton as if he had done so all his life, using all the bells, whistles and effects he could find – a magnificent performance with got him a huge cheer! I did see films and stage shows there as well – a truly great theatre. I believe the Copmton was saved and will be (is?) restored – can anyone confirm this?
