Wigan Jazz Festival

The Festival was formed in 1986 in response to the region’s growing audience for jazz and big band music created in part by the Wigan Youth Jazz Orchestra and is now one of the UKs longest running jazz festivals. Featuring many of the world’s finest jazz artists, many of iconic status, the event quickly gained a reputation for being one of the finest jazz Festivals in Europe.
