About

The Brindley is owned by Halton Borough Council and is the main centre for arts and entertainment for the borough of Halton which covers the twin towns of Runcorn and Widnes on either side of the River Mersey.
The Brindley opened in September 2004 with the following mission statement:
‘The Brindley will provide excellent facilities and opportunities for engaging with and access to performances, exhibitions and events which entertain, educate and inspire’.
The building was designed by the brilliant architect Richard Brierley of John Miller Partners and the design won a Royal Institute of British Architects Architectural Award in 2004.

The Name…
The Brindley is named after James Brindley (1716-1772) one of the most notable and inventive engineers of the 18th century.
He was responsible for the construction of the Bridgewater Canal that The Brindley overlooks.
The name was chosen by public competition.
