Gold, GOLD, always believe in your soul....

Okay, this isn't strictly theatre news but news of a performer on a different stage - a sporting one! If, like me, you were sucked into the breath-taking spectacle of human endeavour that was the Beijing Olympics, you cannot fail to be blown away by the achievements of the UK Cycling team.

Luckily for us, one of those Gold Medal winning cyclists, was Bolton boy Jason Kenny. Apparently, he is Bolton's first ever Gold medalist. There will be a civic welcome on Victoria Square for the marvellous Mr Kenny tomorrow (Saturday 30 Aug).

The celebrations will start at 11.30 and Jason will display his medals on the steps of Bolton Town Hall, where members of the public will have the chance to congratulate him on his success on Victoria Square. We will also have with us former Bolton Olympians, including Amir Khan who personally wanted to come down and congratulate Jason, the Chairman of Bolton Wanderers and other special guests.

Not only that, but Saturday sees the second day of the marvellous Food and Drink Festival. So loads to see, do and eat in Bolton this weekend. You can read about the Octagon Food Festival event here.
