George Formby Statue to be moved
Today the George Formby Statue will be unveiled in his new home. He was unveiled a couple of years ago in the Grand Arcade, Wigan. This was in a corridor towards the back of the arcade. At the time Wigan Council was trying to stop this from happening and would not give planning permission anywhere else.
After all this time a new home in the centre of the Grand Arcade, next to the information desk has been found and he will be unveiled later today at 2 pm. Why not come down and see it all happen.
