Bolton Win FA Cup Final!

And Did Those Feet, the story of Bolton's journey the the 1923 FA Cup Final, opened last night and seems to have been well-received by the audience. Apparently some die-hard BWFC fans even turned up in full kit, such is their dedication!

I managed to to get a look in at the dress rehearsal and despite my apathetic approach to football, there was plenty in this production to keep my attention. The clogging is great and I loved the homage to silent movies that were so popular at the time! On the subject of movies, I hope to upload a 'talkie' about the production next week, so you can have a look.

In the meantime have at look at some of Ian Tilton's lovely shots of the production below:

The cast (clockwise: Hayley Jayne Standing (Martha), Jeff Hordley (Ted), Martin Barrass (Bob), James Quinn (Alf), Susan Twist (Hilda) and Paul Simpson (Jim)) get ready for the FA Cup final!!
