Wigan Diggers’ Festival September 2020 POSTPONED UNTIL 2021

Due to the situation with the Corona virus this year’s 10th anniversary festival has been postponed until 2021, sad news but we hope you will help us make the Diggers’ 10th anniversary festival next year one to remember. Stay safe people and we hope to see you all in 2021.

Here’s a memory from 2019’s headliners ‘The Men They Couldn’t Hang’ with the wondeful Joe Solo joining them on stage…
