  Does anyone know if his wishes are being carried out? I haven't seen that Bands are back playing in the Park on Sundays, as they used to be?

Apparently his family objected to his will and won in court so no money was obtained.

According to the report it went to court and his family said they had no objection to the money being used as the will? and the will stood.

Well, I remember the latest such concert being reported in the Observer in the Autumn.
The story about the family objecting has been stated here before - but it appears it's not true - see:

Why has the residents of Wigan not queried, the fact that no bands have been arranged to play in the park. Is everything still in probate?.
