We are delighted to present One Night in Bolton a new radio play by local stage and screen writer Becky Prestwich performed by talented members of our Young Octagon Company which will premiere on Bolton FM.

One Night in Bolton was originally written as a stage play to open the new Octagon in summer 2020. However, restrictions caused by Covid-19, including limitations on youth theatre groups meeting in person, meant the project needed to be reimagined and has been reworked in to a wonderful new radio play.

One Night in Bolton tells the stories of Julie and Ray - two fictional audience members who were there at the opening night of the original theatre in 1967.

From that eventful night through to the present day, the show promises a celebratory, uplifting story about the Octagon, growing up and what makes a community.

Performed by our Young Octagon Company and featuring a community choir, be prepared for laughter, jokes, treasured memories and some singing along at home.

Audiences can enjoy this brand new radio play by tuning in to Bolton FM from 7pm on Tue 15 June. Listen live on a DAB digital radio at 96.5FM or online at boltonfm.com 




No need to book - this special event will be premiered on Bolton FM at 7pm on Tue 15 June 2021. Listen live on a DAB digital radio at 96.5FM or online at boltonfm.com
