Bickershaw is a hamlet, effectively a suburb of Abram, within the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan, in Greater Manchester, England. It has a population 1,405 as of 2001, and is located three miles south-southeast of Wigan.

The village is the location of HMP Hindley, a juvenile prison and Young Offenders Institiution serving the Greater Manchester area.

Bickershaw was home to the Bickershaw Festival in 1972. It was organised by a then unknown Jeremy Beadle (He was then editor of Time Out North West magazine), and featured bands such as the Grateful Dead, Captain Beefheart and the Kinks. Despite being a muddy, unorganised mess, it has achieved a place in musical folklore, inspiring the likes of Joe Strummer and Elvis Costello to start bands.

In 2012 a reunion was held on the actual site of the Bickershaw Festival. This gained a lot of local interest

Bickershaw is represented under the Wigan constituency and the North West England ward for the European Parliament.
