Words Festival

The Wigan Words Festival is an annual celebration of reading, storytelling, poetry and the arts.


We need people of all ages to help us plan for 2015, which could mean anything from just doing something you enjoy for a couple of hours, once or twice a year, to taking a key role in shaping and supporting Wigan’s cultural offer.


Along the way you will receive all necessary training and learn new, transferable skills.


If you would be interested in finding out more, with no obligation, please contact Carole Ogden on 01942 828 121 or c.ogden@wlct.org.


It’s your festival and we want you to be part of it! Watch this space as we have a Summer of Words ahead, with creative activities for adults and children, as well as public discussion sessions where you can find out more about the Words programme and have your say about how it will look.
