Summer Holiday Launch

Summer Holiday Launch

A picture story: the cast and crew of Summer Holiday took their first ride on a Vision bus ahead of the ground breaking promenade production.

The day began at the Bolton Interchange where we heard Elizabeth introduce the off-site season

Joined by ITV Granada Reports, the Bolton News and our community group Art Beat the cast and crew gave the guests the first flavour of the Octagon production.

Inflatable beach balls, palm trees and lilos were piled onto the bus amongst the guests

This was the first time the actors had experienced the buses they would soon be performing on and of course it was important to get as many pictures as possible

Actors Michael, Alex, David and Luke playing Don, Cyril, Steve and Edwin

Typically as theatre types we made a bit of a scene on Victoria Square and made sure everyone was suitably excited for the upcoming performance

After a great day for the launch we can't wait for Summer Holiday to start!
