ALRA North | Mill at Pier


ALRA North is five minutes from the main high street - Standishgate - with its shops, bars, clubs and the Grand Arcade, a new shopping centre carrying all the major brands. Wigan Wallgate and Wigan North Western Stations are a 15 minute walk away.

The award-winning Bolton Octagon Theatre is 20 minutes away by train, Manchester and Liverpool 50 minutes; both are centres of theatrical excellence, with the Royal Exchange, Contact, the Everyman and the Liverpool Playhouse all producing their own work. Other Liverpool and Manchester theatres showcase the best large-scale touring and musical theatre.

There is strong national drama output from BBC Radio Manchester and Granada TV studios. Increasingly, agents and casting directors are choosing to base themselves in Manchester and the surrounding area.
