Music Around Wigan

Wigan has been well known for its popular music since the days of George Formby Sr. and George Formby Jr. It was the birthplace of The Eight Lancashire Lads a dancing troupe who gave the young Charlie Chaplin his professional debut. One member of the troupe was a John Willie Jackson, The "John Willie" to whom George Formby would often refer in his songs. Wigan remains a centre of popular music for young people, with a number of alternative pubs/clubs in the town centre. Throughout the early 1990s The Den was a popular venue for bands with acts such as Green Day heading over to play. The Lux Club was a popular venue during the mid-2000s before it too was demolished. NXNW have hosted the annual Wigan Festival of Art, Music and Literature known as the North By North Western Festival.
