Orrell Live: Have a look at our pictures from a fantastic event in Wigan
Thousands of Wiganers attended a spectacular open-air community event featuring US soul star Alexander O’Neal.
Orrell Live, now in its fifth year, was once again a huge success and was completely sold out. Seven bands took to the stage at the Winstanley Road venue, with Golborne Brass Band closing the event with all the flag-waving and pomp and circumstance of Orrell’s Last Night of the Proms. The massive event, which is expected to bring in between £25,000 and £30,000, is the brainchild of a three-man organising committee made up of cricket club members Spencer Anglesea, Paul Mottram and Martin James.
