  Comments the Beatles did not appear in Wigan in October 1963 - it was October 1964. I know because I was there. On the bill with them was Mary Wells who sang 'My Guy' which didn't come out until 1964.

  Comments Must spend more time here. I was in Wigan for 25 year or more. I founded The Bijou Theatre Company, proving theatre in schools and also putting on a local pantomime. I also founded and edited for five years - Wigan Scene magazine, which in one edition featured the actress Elizabeth Larner - born on the old serwarage farm in Scott Lane, Wigan. She's missing from the famous Wiganers list. Her main claim to fame is that she played Ammonia in "Up Pompii". But she was a very much admired West End Musical Comedy star.

  Comments Great site. My mother grew up in Wigan and is in one of the Walking Days photos for St. Micheals (In front of the Bowling Green Hotel). The date says 1950, however I think it may be closer to 1947.

  Comments A lovely site. Have only ever visited Wigan a few times, computer fairs and shopping, very recently when staying with relatives in Billinge. Loved it! Wigan was a joke when I as a girl in Liverpool very many years ago - not now!
