Wigton Theatre Club is a charity run entirely by volunteers. We own the John Peel Theatre which is our much loved home, but as an old building it is expensive to run and maintain. We rely entirely on ticket sales and refreshment sales for our income, but we put on free Open Mic Nights almost every month, and the odd free show such as Remembering. Please consider leaving a donation using the link below or in the box in the foyer- help us keep the lights on and pay our many bills!
