Leigh Canal Festival ~ 5 & 6 September 2020

Leigh Miners’ Welfare Institute

L&L Canal - Wigan Flashes

We have received some exciting news from the chairperson of Healthy Arts (a not-for-profit organisation), informing us of their plans to celebrate the bi-centenary of the Leigh branch of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal in 2020.

Consultations are underway with local residents and groups such as ourselves, to gauge their views and glean their local knowledge.

We are invited to freely promote our club at the festival … offering either a historical display (stall) and/or an interactive activity.

For further information, contact Julie Mckiernan – leighcanalfestival@gmail.com
