We currently house a range of local community groups and active sessions! See below to find one that suits you.


We are always looking out to expand our active sessions and add to our weekly classes. If you would be interested in the space we have to offer, you could expand and offer more to the community and your business. If you would like to come and view our building and the venues available we would be more than happy to show you around.

SCHOOL OF ROCK (ages 11-17)


We believe that the best way to learn music is to play music. At School Of Rock, your child will have the opportunity to learn from fully qualified tutors and professional musicians. Whether your child is determined to be the next big thing or is just looking for a new hobby, register them a place today.

The Old Courts, working in partnership with Wigan Council Music Service, have created the perfect setting for your child to develop their musical talents. Make friends with people with the same interests, build self-confidence and perform in a live music venue! Booking is essential. Get in touch today.

OVER 50'S JAMMERS (ages 50+)


The group is open to anyone that would like to pop along; all you need is an instrument and if you’re struggling to get hold of one then we may be able to help. It’s a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and everyone is invited.


If you have a passion for music, can play an instrument and would like to meet like-minded people, then this is the group for you. So pop along and have a jam and maybe learn something new.


No tickets or pre booking necessary and its £3.50 for entry.

The Young Courts Theatre Group: DRAMA (ages 4-16)


Our aim at The Young Courts Theatre Group is to develop creativity and confidence in every child.  We are an inclusive group - children of all abilities are welcome here. 

We encourage every child to develop their unique talents and skills. We are not a traditional acting, singing and dance school- we offer your child a chance to make friends, become new characters, make stories, write scripts, choreograph dances, sing their favourite songs and show off the instruments they play. Nobody is forced to dance, sing or write if they don’t like that. Interested? Booking is essential.
