Former members of The Beautiful South bring their classic songs to Wigan as current band performs

A band which rose from the ashes of a popular British group is heading to Wigan to perform its most popular hits.

When The Beautiful South split in 2007, some members of the band wanted to keep performing and so created a group called The South.

The nine-piece band features former members including singer Alison Wheeler and saxophone player Gaz Birtles.
