The fair used to come to Wigan and was situated on the old cobbled market car park right next to the bus terminus. Happy days and happy memories the colour of the fairground lights sparkling in the night sky, Black Peas, Candy floss, Toffee Apples and Ice Cream!
This painting by Wigan artist David Barrow celebrates the days of the fair in Wigan town centre, the artwork presents a slightly different view of the fair than it’s sister painting Fair Time Wigan. Mesnes clock tower can be the seen in the distance and the bus terminus is presented perfectly as a the wonderful island shape it once was.
Simple fun times of yesteryear encapsulated in a superb and colourful painting.
