OUR STUDIO COMMUNITY
The Turnpike Studio is used by a wide variety of local community groups and organisations. From film screenings, festivals, performances, talks and much more, there's lots to get involved with.

LEIGH TOWNSWOMEN'S GUILD
Leigh TG are a friendly social group of women, that meet throughout the month to listen to speakers, see demonstrations and enjoy a cup of tea and a good chat with friends. Outings and social gathering also take place, with regular meetings with other Townswomen Guilds in their surrounding towns.
LEIGH MUSIC SOCIETY
Leigh Music Society presents 7 concerts per year between September and March on Sunday afternoons in the Turnpike Studio. Concerts are full-length with an interval, when you can chat with friends over tea and coffee, and finish around 4pm.
Now in its 47th season, the Society regularly invites established professional musicians from around the region to perform, and also showcases rising young stars of the classical music scene.
LEIGH & DISTRICT FAMILY HISTORY SOCIETY
The group meet at the Turnpike Studio on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, except July, August & December at 7.30 p.m. A talk by a visiting speaker usually relates to family history and local history topics and there is a Help Desk available for anyone to ask for help with their own family history research.
