We have lots of different rooms and spaces within our charming building and also run other venues in Wigan and further afield.
The Victorian Courtroom is a truly dramatic space. It now hosts a wide variety of events from book launches, art classes and conferences to private celebrations and weddings.
Our main music venue is a staged, draped space perfect for live music performance. We welcome bands, DJ’s and soloists here for weekly shows in a unique but considered space.
Our gallery space occupies a fantastic area of the building. With large moveable display boards and as much or as little natural light as you require, the space is moulded to the demands of the exhibition.
Our 150 seat theatre is traditional in feel and hosts a wide range of shows and theatre-makers developing work. We welcome international shows, UK touring work, local projects and community work.
Inspired by The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, this cosy space in the Bailiff Bar hosts open mics, improv, comedy and poetry shows and has quickly become a popular venue for off-piste entertainment.
The Judge’s Chamber is a beautifully decorated space adjacent to The Victorian Courtroom and is included in the room hire packages.
Our home for artists in residence. A quiet and equipped place where artists can develop and rehearse new material, this is where actors, writers and producers become endeared to our building and make fantastic work.
Our café is open 7 days a week with plenty of variety of mouth-watering options including plant-based, gluten free, superb coffee and a wide range of teas. Walls are adorned with pieces of local artwork from the Swinley Art Group.
Wigan’s hidden gem. A cultured and friendly spot with an extensive cocktail menu, a huge variety of drinks and free entertainment from a host of talented artists. This is the hangout for anyone who likes vibrancy and choice.
A workspace solution for creatives and professionals who need desk space, WIFI, tea and coffee facilities and meeting rooms on an adhoc basis.
As a former courthouse, we are fortunate to have the Victorian cells that once housed the accused who were standing trial. These spaces are now being re-purposed as mini retail spaces for charities and artists.
Working in collaboration with Step Places, Wigan Council and Canals Rivers Trust we are transforming the iconic Wigan Pier in to a food hall, events venue and cultural education spaces.
The facility will be used as a mixed-use development hub focussing on support and incubation of early career and developing creative and social enterprises. The facility will feature hot-desking, shared offices and private offices as well as purpose-built studios for digital creatives, a cafe and of course hotel bedrooms. It is hoped that the facility will house up to 200 individuals from various creative industries.
