WELCOME TO THE TURNPIKE

Due to the latest government guidance, we are temporarily closed

But our work continues! At The Turnpike we're responding effectively to rapidly changing circumstances, priorities and uncertainties. We are using our resources to connect artists with community in order to co-develop ambitious ideas for positive social impact and a vision for a sustainable future.

Here are a few things currently happening at The Turnpike

 

ACTIVATIONS: ONLINE LIVE EVENT

Saturday 3rd April 6pm – 7pm.

WORKING CLASS WITCHES ON BROKEN PAVEMENTS

Poetry performance and live Q&A with poet Louise Fazackerley.

Alt-pop poet, Louise Fazackerley, performs a selection of poetry chosen to reflect themes that mirror the life and actions of The Leigh Female Reformers of 1819. Her contemporary lived observations of life and politics in a northern town speak across the centuries and evoke an atmosphere of place; of hardship, of conviviality, and of everyday magic.

This event is part of the project These Lancashire Women are Witches In Politics at The Turnpike, Leigh.
