All rides are £1 and the fair will be open on weekdays from 5.30pm until to 9pm and 1pm until 9pm at weekends.

There is also a free firework display organised for Saturday at approximately 7.30pm.

Fair boss Arthur Silcock said that he always timed his fair to come to Wigan at this point of the year because it has been tradition to do so for generations. In years past the fair used to be on the old Wigan outdoor market.
