Are you a performer, writer, creative practitioner in Wigan? Do you want a space to meet up with other artists?

Our new monthly drop-in sessions will be a supportive environment to share ideas and build connections with other creative practitioners in the area. Open to all artists, whatever your experience or discipline.

Drop-ins will vary – expect networking activity, guest facilitators and platforms for local artists. There will be both in-person and online options, with no commitment required.

In person sessions are hosted in the Bailiff Bar in The Old Courts, online sessions will be hosted on Zoom.


Tue 29 Nov 5:00pm – 7:00pm – facilitated by The Old Courts producing team, this will be an informal session to share ideas and help shape future drop-ins. We’ll be joined by Dave Jenkins (The Old Court’s Managing Director) and Pete Courtie (Senior Relationship Manager at Arts Council England) who are keen to hear from local artists about need & support, and answer questions about plans across the borough
