Continuing access to music for adults in Wigan.
We set up The Music Continuum to encourage adults back into music as players or listeners.
There are thousands of adults within the borough who used to play instruments but have stopped for whatever reason. Our aim is to get them back socialising and enjoying music again.
We have set up The Really Awful Orchestra that meets at Hindley Music Centre, Park Road every Monday from 7.00 to 9.00p.m. All players are welcome, regardless of ability, to come along with their instruments and enjoy playing with others and sharing their skills.
We will also be organising a variety of music concerts around the borough over the year. Details of these can be found on our Events Page.
We have now taken over the organisation and financing of the Wigan International Jazz Festival. The best jazz artists in the world have appeared at this prestigious Festival over the years. The Music Continuum intends to preserve this important cultural event in the region.
