10th Wigan Diggers Festival
The 10th Wigan Diggers Festival, a day celebrating the life, work, ideas and influence of Wigan-born founder of the Diggers’ Movement, Gerrard Winstanley (1609-1676) and our town as a cradle of Socialism.
A free event offering ideas, music, togetherness and hope in a time of trouble and division.
With stalls offering political inclusiveness for the many not the few, plus music and poetry throughout the day on two stages, featuring original local, regional and nationally recognised artists in a variety of complementary genres.
There is also a bar featuring Diggers themed ales.
In these days of austerity, exclusion and greed, with government by the Boris, for the Boris, this is a celebration by the people, for the people. We are revolting- come and join in, you may enjoy it.
