Pig comes to Powerfest!

Pig comes to Powerfest!
Pig comes to Powerfest!

FAMILIES are invited to celebrate the power of Wigan’s mighty steam engine, the power of the pig and the power of terror this half term.

Trencherfield Mill hosts its popular annual Powerfest event on Wednesday 29 October, between 11am-4pm.

Visitors will have the chance to see the Trencherfield Mill Steam Engine, which is one of the largest and finest working examples of its kind, in full steam; while a host of activities take place throughout the day.

And this year is set to be bigger and better than ever, with a 30ft pig and some spooky guests joining in the fun.

Bill Rowley, Manager at the mill, said: “We’ve got something for everyone this year, from wood turning demonstrations and Hallowe’en-themed arts and crafts to a book signing and spooky story telling! I’d encourage families to come along for a fun-filled half term treat.”

One of the event’s highlights looks set to be Gloria the 30ft inflatable pig. Visitors can watch actors perform inside her belly during 10 minute shows taking place every 15 minutes during the day.

Spook’s author Joseph Delaney, whose books are being transformed into Hollywood film Seventh Son, will be attending and Spook Johnson will be on site to lead groups on the Trencherfield Terror Trail!

There will also be canal tours on the Kittiwake available for a small additional charge.

Charge for entry is £2 adults, £1 children and concessions, plus £5 family ticket (2 adults, 2 children). Pay on the door.

Events are at selected times. Check www.wlct.org/wigan for further details.
