I can't wait for the bit where they pipe in the traditional Wiggin 'aggis pie with chunky chips. Are we saying the Galloways Grace as well? People should really get off their Hurdies and get to this one...

From what I've heard they will be traditional Scottish pipes, but he won't be dressed up posh like the man above. The dress code will be more like Mel Gison in Braveheart - which probably goes better with the free Wigan spirit...

Will the piper be playing a traditional set of Wigan Bagpies?

If anyone doesn't know where the Tudor is, just follow the music - you'll be able to hear it all over Wigan :)
