“I am thrilled to come on board as a judge for the Octagon’s creative writing competition. I have had many wonderful nights in Bolton over the years and think this is a fantastic opportunity for everyone aged 11 to 111 to have a go at writing a short story about their town. As an actor and a writer I know the power that writing can have and really encourage anyone thinking about having a go to enter - I cannot wait to read the entries!”
