Octagon theatre Bolton & University of Bolton
By Les Smith and Martin Thomasson
Directed by David Thacker

Follow how a group of Boltonians find their lives transformed by eleven men in white shirts on an unstoppable march to Wembley.

It’s 1923 and the first final to be held in the new Wembley stadium and with Joe Smith and David Jack scoring goals galore - could this be the year for the Wanderers? When Bob reveals he’s off to Wembley Stadium on foot, there is some disbelief. Martha's wedding falls on the day of the Final. What if the vicar can’t make it…or even the groom! But for Alf and Hilda the telegram from the War Office brings some sad news.

Get ready for a moving and uplifting tale of love, redemption, grief and passion that will make you proud to be Boltonian.

Make sure you don't miss out, after sell out success in 2007 & 2009 And Did Those Feet returns, this time it will be performed at the home of the Wanderers.
