The re-opening announcement of the Old Dog Music Hall (under new management) appeared in the Wigan Observer on Saturday, August 28th 1886:-
OLD DOG MUSIC HALL WIGAN
This establishment was situated next door to the Alexandra Music Hall, and was previously a coaching inn. It continued to function with great success, as a Music Hall, for nearly twenty five years, after which it became an ordinary public house, until it was demolished in 1970.
