GALLERY: Wigan Diggers Festival 2023

Music, speeches and entertainment were to be enjoyed at the annual Wigan Diggers Festival 2023 - celebrating the 17th century socialist Gerrard Winstanley, held in Believe Square.

The legacy of Wigan-born Gerrard Winstanley was also the subject of talks and discussions at The Museum of Wigan Life and the Parish Church, including a return of the legendary film-maker, Ken Loach.

Last year’s festival was cancelled at the 11th hour following the death of Queen Elizabeth.
