Haigh Stables Gallery


Haigh Stables Gallery was established at Haigh Hall in 1993 by a group of artists and craft workers. It was originally set up as a permanent craft fair, selling hand made goods and pictures.

The Gallery has evolved over the years to provide something for everyone. It's free admission and everything we do is unbelievably good value.

What we offer

Our shop

We sell the artwork of working members, including pictures by Philip Davies, the only surviving, original founding member. He sells watercolour originals and Wigan prints in pen drawings.

As well as various artists' craft items and Philip's pictures, we sell customised glass by Rachael Elizabeth, personalised 'allsorts' by Shelley and Pyrography by Lindsey.

We have a range of gifts and pocket money toys including frizbees, footballs, and buckets and spades for playing out in the Park.

We also sell the only postcards of Wigan available anywhere, created from our own original artwork drawings.

Workshop - Craft activities and lessons

The workshop is probably the most popular part of the Stables Gallery, where children can paint plaster figures for a small price (typically £2 - £4) and adults can learn to draw or paint watercolours with Philip Davies.

When? Kids crafts are every day, and adult drawing and painting lessons are on Wednesdays.

Arty party

You can book Saturday parties for 10 to 15 children (ages 5 and over) in the Stables Gallery.

We provide three crafts and all the materials - there are usually two painting crafts and one miscellaneous one. We include a present for the Birthday child. We also offer themed parties such as Disney or animals etc.

We will pre-plan the crafts with you a month before, but crafts available may include Paint-a-thing, Paint-a-tile, Make-a-bracelet and others. Face painting may also be available at an additional cost.

  • How much? The cost of a party is £80 for up to 10 Children, then £7 for each extra child up to a maximum of 15 children (maximum cost would be £115 for 15). Face Painting is an optional extra at £2 per child
  • How long? The parties usually run for 1 hour 30 mins
  • How to book? Call Michelle on 07815842118 to make a party booking enquiry. A deposit of £20 will be required to complete the booking.

Please note, food is not supplied by the Gallery and you do not have exclusive use of the whole room. Parties in the Stables Gallery CANNOT be booked through Haigh Hall - we are independent.
