Together with The Old Bank offering coffee, teas and cakes plus two bars around the venue offering craft beer and cocktails, Feast at The Mills has been hailed a success by Heaton Group, the business behind the venue.

Live music and DJs set the atmosphere each weekend from the Casino Shed – a dedicated live performance stage.

Celebrating the original features of the industrial site, visitors have been wowed by the transformation of the space into an indoor-outdoor venue, which can be experienced in all weathers.

Open every Friday from 5pm to midnight and on Saturday from noon to midnight and Sunday from noon til late, Feast at The Mills is the first of its kind for Wigan and will be open through to the end of this year.

Alex McCulloch, Development Manager at Heaton Group, said: “We are thrilled with how well received Feast at The Mills has been – there is a real buzz about the place and it’s great to see the Eckersley Mill site brought to life and filled with visitors from the local area and beyond.

"Our street food vendors creating their own Wigan kebabs has been fantastic and a playful nod to our local heritage.”

Feast at The Mills represents the first stage of Wigan-based Heaton Group’s plans to redevelop the whole Eckersley Mills site, acting as an incubator for the permanent food hall, currently under development in the neighbouring Mill One building.
