» Pemberton Brass Band Headline Easter Extravaganza
Wigan Warriors are set to welcome the Pemberton Old Brass band back to the DW Stadium tomorrow to help celebrate St Georges Day.
The Warriors will be looking to back up their impressive Good Friday win with another victory over Bradford Bulls from 3pm. Before the match the stadium will also host entertainment for the whole family, headlined by music from Pemberton Old Brass Band.
On top of the Easter Celebrations, the band are set to launch celebrations of St Georges Day, which takes place on Wednesday (23rd April), with a special performance of Jerusalem.
The Pemberton Old Wigan DW Band organisation currently boasts a Championship Section band currently led by Stig Maersk, a 'B' Band recently promoted to the Second Section led by Peter Ashley and a Youth Band led by John Don-Duncan. The Senior band is currently ranked in the top 30 in the 4br rankings and has successfully qualified for the National Finals at The Royal Albert Hall twice since 2009 and had numerous successes as a contesting band. The band, however, prides itself most on its innovative concerts and the three-tier organisation which serves the Wigan community.
Outside the stadium before kick off there will also be more live music from Tim Critchley on the Warriors Showcase Stage which will form part of the Fans Village in the South East corner of the ground.
