Wainsgate has always been a much loved place to gather.


The building attracts visitors from near and far, drawing people with diverse backgrounds and interests to its varied programme of activities.


People of all ages come together in the building to enjoy the many music, dance/performance, art and heritage events.


The whole building is brought to life for events like the Wainsgate Bazaar, Open Studios  and Heritage Open Days, with things happening in all of the different rooms, including organ recitals, films, concerts, food and drink to create an atmosphere of celebration and community.


Large numbers of visitors come through the doors to participate.


Wainsgate has a special relationship  and Old Town Primary School and the children participate in numerous dance related activities and other events such as the annual Christingle service in the chapel.


Wainsgate also continues to build relationships with Wadsworth Community Centre, Old Town Cricket Club and other community stakeholders to help to nurture more cohesion and to come together with others to build a more vibrant and active community life in the area.
