We are delighted to announce that we shall be hosting the first three concerts of 2017 at The Old Courts, Crawford Street, Wigan. This is just across the road from the church. We have listened to feedback from our regular customers (and musicians), who well know that while the church has excellent natural acoustics and atmosphere, it is let down as a music venue in Winter months due to cold draughts and a queue for the outside toilet!
The Old Courts is a fully-fitted music venue these days, with three theatre spaces, dedicated bar, a selection of toilets and heat! Separate FB events will be set up for each gig very shortly

For our first concert of 2017 on 10 February, we welcome Mark Harrison back to Wigan.

As always tickets are available from:


In person: Symphony Music, Market Street, Wigan
By phone: David Hiney – 07875 881436

MARK HARRISON’s highly individual, all-original music has been going down very well with audiences of all kinds, and it has taken him to some of the top venues and festivals in the UK, attracting acclaim wherever he goes. Mark has taken the style of the early blues and folk/blues innovators, and given it totally modern relevance. His songs all have something to say or a story to tell. With their memorable tunes, striking lyrics and strong rhythms, they make people think, smile and move. He is doing something genuinely fresh and different, tapping into the timeless quality of ‘old’ music to produce something brand new and totally relevant to the present day.
