Introduction

WE NEED YOUR MEMORIES

As part of our Heritage Lottery Funded ‘Round Wigan’ Project, our young people are researching the evolution of Wigan’s vibrant cultural heritage throughout 1950’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.

To help with their research our team need your memories – whether it be pictures you have from Wigan in the 80’s, stories about your time at Wigan Casino or you run a residential home or elderly group who would be happy to take a trip down memory lane and give us their stories…
