The Altrincham Garrick Playhouse was founded in 1913, although the current building dates from 1931 and was given a major refurbishment in 1999.

The Society itself has shown a taste for slightly edgier-than-usual material than is common with amateur companies; the 2015 season included Martin McDonagh's gory comedy thriller The Lieutenant of Inishmore.
The nearest train station is Navigation Road, and the Playhouse is served by the 19, 41, 245, 247, 263 and X41 buses.
