Manchester indie band The Courteeners, The Coral, the hunky Peter Andre and star of Pineapple Dance Studio’s Andrew Stone – with his band Starman – will all perform in the grounds of Wigan’s majestic manor house in June and July.
And to ensure you don’t miss out we’ve secured a couple of competition tickets!
Haigh Hall Live! is being brought to Wigan by private promoters Cuffe and Taylor, and supported by Wigan Leisure and Culture Trust.
The opening night of the four day event on Thursday 30 June will see indie band The Courteeners perform with Merseyside based The Coral supporting. It’s an evening sure to evoke memories of the Verve’s triumphant 1998 home coming gig – the event is expected to be a sell out.
Event director Peter Taylor said: “This is going to be an epic night. It will be a celebration of Manchester’s finest, in a wonderful location that will set the tone for the weekend.
“I keep saying it but the people of Wigan are lucky to have this venue on their doorstep.”
On Friday 1 July pop fans can revel in a truly eclectic line-up of celebrities with Mysterious Girl singer and TV presenter Peter Andre, Andrew Stone and Starman all performing.
The curtain for this wonderful celebration of music will be brought down by the annual Haigh Fest – a celebration of the borough’s best unsigned bands on Sunday 3 July.
Organisers of Haigh Fest, Wigan Leisure and Culture Trust, will be introducing a nominal £2 charge this year in light of government cuts to funding.
Chief Executive of Wigan Leisure and Culture Trust, Stuart Murray, said: “Central government funding for this wonderful event is no longer available. By working with Cuffe and Taylor and by introducing a nominal fee we can ensure the long term future of this fantastic event.”
All tickets are available from the following ticket outlets Haigh Live (external link) 0844 880 6614 or See Tickets (external link); Ticketmaster (external link) on 0844 873 7334. For more information visit Haigh Live (external link)
