James Winterbottom, director of strategy and innovation at Wigan Council, said: “Following on from the success of Frost Fest, which took place at Christmas, we’re really excited to launch the Leigh Feast.

“What a great way to spend your Saturday afternoon and get a taste of all that Leigh has to offer, at what is a really exciting time for the town.”

Leigh Feast is funded by the UK Government’s UK Shared Prosperity Fund, and has been made possible thanks to Greater Manchester Combined Authority securing funding to deliver UKSPF projects, which forms part of the Government’s wider Levelling Up agenda.

The first Leigh Feast will take place on Leigh Civic Square on Saturday, May 4,
