I've been to The Old Courts for really quite a few different events now, there's always something interesting going on. They have a great new art space, as well as their awesome gig spaces, I've been to gigs in The Baliff Bar and upstairs in the Grand Vault, really fantastic, I've been to art exhibitions and the fabulous Talulah Vintage night. They have so many different kinds of events on, there's something cool on every day basically! It's always worth a visit!

Today I was lucky enough to have a bit of time to myself to visit Trencherfield Mill on a Steaming Sunday , what a great couple of hours experience, Bill the guide was so knowledgeable about the history of the mill, its owners, the steam engine, the cotton process & Wigan in general when it was a thriving cotton producing area, he really shows a passion for promoting the area. The steam engine in motion is a spectacular piece of engineering in anyone's eyes, the visitors on the day.
