This is Albert Square, Manchester, taken at the foot of John Bright's statue. The building with the pointed turret is on the corner of Southmill St, and the white building which can be seen behind the man wearing sunglasses is the old police headquarters.

David, don't think this is in Wigan - it is nowhere recognisable to me and I have lived in Wigan all my life.

I did put a ? mark after the title 'cause I wasn't sure where this was taken. It could quite well be Manchester as we did quite a few whit walks from, if I remember correctly, a church in Pendleton into Albert Square and back again.

Correct about it being Albert Square in Manchester. That building on the right with the tower is a bbq restaraunt now. We were in there a few weeks back.

Looking at the shoulder badge of the girl at the front of the group, the band in blue uniforms could be Whaley Bridge.I believe they still wear blue uniforms today.
