Activating the Turnpike

the exterior of The Turnpike, a concrete brutalist building

The Turnpike is a cultural centre in Leigh, a new organisations that draws on a 50-year history of arts practice, based in an iconic 1970s brutalist building .

We are working with Director Helen Stalker, the gallery team, Leigh community and artists to help shape a new direction for The Turnpike, as an artist-led testing ground – a place of healing, learning and creative exchange, that operates beyond its walls and throughout the town.
