About us


The Turnpike Gallery is an arts and exhibition space based in Leigh.

We offer free cultural activity for all ages, rooted in our belief that meaningful encounters with art and artists can support wellbeing, open us up to new perspectives and create connections with each other and our environment. We collaborate with our communities, platform marginalised voices and nurture local artists through our exhibitions and engagement programmes.

The legacy of the Turnpike Centre is part of the fabric of this town - over the years, its reputation has brought artists, local organisations, and visitors together to shape the cultural offer in Leigh, the Wigan borough and beyond.
