THE VENUE

Back in 2015, the Youth Zone board decided that the older teens of Wigan deserved somewhere grown up to hang out and spend their weekends, somewhere they would be excited to go to and had a bursting events calendar to boot – from this idea, The Venue was born!

The Venue is a state-of-the-art ‘Hard Rock Café’ style gig venue, open to all young people aged 16 – 21. Every weekend, we host entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights – everything from upcoming bands, quizzes, Open Mic Nights and even celebrity appearances!

The Venue opened back in September 2015 and has gone from strength to strength with tons of young people coming through the door week in, week out.

Digital Skills Hub

Our digital skills hub opened in December 2015 as part of The Venue building, this fantastic boutique training facility is equipped with the latest IT equipment, provided by our partners Agilsys, who also support digital training by offering apprenticeships. The project is also supported by Wigan Council, helping to get the venue up and running.

The Skills Hub is an extension of the continued great work of Wigan Youth Zone, offering young people another tangible support tool in preparation for work. Getting young people ready for a work environment is key to the Youth Zone’s success, its important that we give student’s self-esteem, confidence, and self-respect to enable them to confidently navigate the working world.
