The family behind a popular Wigan pub has announced that the venue is set to reopen TONIGHT.


Russell Miller took to social media today (Sunday, October 14) to coyly reveal that the New Market Street watering hole would welcome back punters this evening.

In a brief post on Facebook, he wrote: "So yea, 6pm tonight. Tudor. Open."

He later confirmed the news, telling one person who had asked if his post was true: “Yep. Your favourite local is back open”, and excited locals later took to the web to confirm they were enjoying a drink in the pub.

The pub closed suddenly and unexpectedly in November 2014, and the announcement was met with shock and upset from its devoted punters.

For decades, The Tudor provided live music in the town centre, giving many unsigned acts the chance to perform, usually in front of large crowds.
