Fears have been raised over a music event this weekend after caravans were parked at the site. The vehicles appeared on Pennington Park this week, leading to concerns over the annual picnic proms.

Wigan council has assured people the event ‘will go ahead as planned’. The event is due to kick off at 6pm on Saturday (September 9).

The council has issued an eviction notice to the caravans.

A Wigan council spokesperson said: “An eviction notice has been issued and the event will go ahead as planned.”

Tyldesley Brass Band will provide the pomp and ceremony with traditional singalong anthems such as Land of Hope and Glory and Jerusalem with families invited to bring along picnics, wave their Union flags and enjoy the show.

Tickets are priced from £9.50 for children and £12.50 for adults. Guests can even enjoy an exclusive VIP experience with prosecco and a luxury cream-tea with fresh scones, jam and cream for up to eight guests; all served at a proper table and chairs in a private pre-pitched gazebo.
