The name derived from the shape of the building, the Octagon opened on November 27th 1967 by Princess Margaret, designed by Geoffrey H. Brooks, and won a national Civic Trust award in 1968.

The design permits a central stage surrounded on all sides, called 'Theatre in the round', the first such in the country. The seating can also be rearranged to view a thrust stage.
