The Wigan Music Collective is a well-respected voluntary initiative formed in 1998 with the aim of creating and furthering a healthy live music scene in the area.

Since September 2000, the Collective has organised a live showcase of local groups every Saturday evening at the Tavern (Mesnes Street, Wigan), attracting critically acclaimed international acts as well as a weekly crowd reaching over 200 people.

In addition, for six years the Collective has organised the regions biggest live music event and social calendar highlight, the Haigh Hall Festival, a music festival with home-grown talent and a crowd estimated by local press to top 5,000 people.
