Royal Court Theatre

The Royal Court Theatre opened its doors in 1886 to a performance of the comical Opera, The Beggar Student. Originally seating an audience of 3000 people, the Royal Court showcased Opera, Music and Theatre until 1930 when it was redesigned into a home for the silver screen.

In 2019 The Royal Court Theatre will undergo a transformation, and be restored to its former glory for the people of Wigan and beyond. This incredibly exciting new development, driven by Dave Jenkins of The Old Courts will once again provide the people of our Borough a space to engage and be inspired by magical evenings of live performance.
