Touchstones Rochdale opens its doors, this May, on a Tuesday evening for young people in Rochdale to come and explore their creative talents!


Come along and take part in our brand new TOUCHSTONES YOUTH THEATRE & TOUCHSTONES ART CLUB whereby we are using the borough’s Collections as a starting point to create exciting pieces of art and theatre!
