Performance Hire

Want to hire The Old Courts for a private or public event? We have two main performance venues which alternately offer a standing or a seated option. Hirers of our venues benefit from the full support and service we put behind every event. To plan and deliver events we have a comprehensive back office team with various departments including design and marketing, box office, tech, programming and sales.


Plan your event with us

Each venue has a fully licensed bar with an extensive stock range and a private dressing room for performers. Whether you are touring a show, developing work, looking to host a charity fundraiser or simply want to discuss ideas you may have, please get in touch. We welcome all art forms and ideas with open arms! If it’s creative and legal, we’re all ears!

Our location is perfect! Situated in Wigan town centre, we are a 2-minute walk from the bus station and both train stations, which are served well by all major lines to destinations the length and breadth of the UK, including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool and London.
