The Turnpike Gallery is situated on the first floor of the Turnpike Centre and is the home of art, theatre, music, film, dance and craft for the people of Leigh.

In 2014 the Gallery changed hands from WLCT to CreativeLEIGH, part of the umbrella charity Trust In Leigh. The space will continue to host a rolling programme of exhibitions focusing on the work of local artists and community groups, especially young people.

The Gallery will also host an Arts Awards hub, music, dance and drama activities delivered in partnership with some of the region's best arts organisations (including the Octagon Theatre and the Ludus Dance Company) and a Film Society.

Always good for kids activities, other events like exhibitions are a nice touch of art/culture for the town like Leigh. And there's always a very friendly library downstairs to pop in as an alternative.

Just keep your eye out for what is going on. They had a display by U2's lighting designer - Willie Williams. Great stuff. Then more local stuff as well. Good exhibition space

I have visited the Turnpike Gallery many times over the years, there are lots of interesting exhibitions on there throughout the year. The staff on duty are always helpful and the library downstairs is a welcome visit anytime. Inside the library is a free internet service.

I've been to the children's workshops every month and they are brilliant at getting children involved and learning something new. I definitely recommend it and to go again. :)
