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 172 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.
FORK & BRUSH ARTS CAFÉ
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.
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.
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.
We have a hireable low-cost band room available for bands and musicians wanting to rehearse. Equipped with amps, PA and drums (minus breakables), book in and turn up.
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.
Vinyls, vinyls and more vinyls! You will find your jam for sure here! Lovers of music rejoice.
The Judge's Chamber is a beautifully decorated space adjacent to The Victorian Courtroom and is included in the room hire packages.
A treasure trove of a studio space where handmade & vintage creations are made.

ROYAL COURT THEATRE
Having purchased this magnificent gem at auction, we now aim to restore and reinstate The Royal Court Theatre as a vibrant epicentre of theatre, music, dance, comedy and belonging.
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.
