Organiser Mervyn Reeves said: “We have a whole range of displays which will be staffed by experts showing the history of Wigan from its earliest known settlement right up to the present day.
“There will be plenty to see, handle and hear about with a cinema running throughout the two days from 10 to 4 and speakers during the whole period.
“Entrance is free. It will also provide an opportunity to see the church with a guide if needed.”
