Borough Proms in Park

It’s been a year of Union Flag waving celebrations across the nation.

Now Wigan and Leigh folk are being urged to dig them out one last time and prepare themselves for an epic blast of “Land of Hope and Glory” as the borough hosts, not one, but, two Proms in the Park Celebrations.

For the eighth year running Pennington Hall Park in Leigh will hold their Proms in the Park event next Saturday (September 8).

And for the first time the event will also be held in Mesnes Park, Wigan, the following Saturday (September 15) in the newly restored bandstand in Mesnes Park.
