"I remember my days at school vividly and with great affection. Bolton School has a great tradition in the liberal arts. I've always acted for the love of it and this first love was inspired at Hopefield, the school theatre."

  • Samba Band at Bubble Rush

On Sunday 17 September, Bolton School’s Joint Samba Band performed at Bolton Hospice’s Bubble Rush fundraising event held in Queen’s Park, Bolton. Eight pupils in Years 8-11, joined by Mr Forgrieve and Mr Bleasdale, were delighted to give an energy boost to those participating in the 5K run, and they entertained a receptive and appreciative audience for two hours.

Mr Forgrieve said: "It was most satisfying to see hundreds of smiling faces of all ages, and it was great that the weather held out for the duration of the event. 

The four bubble stations, where participants were sprayed with foam by Bubble Commandos, were hugely popular, and there was a lovely atmosphere throughout the park. It was wonderful to observe the crowds thoroughly enjoying themselves whils​t raising funds for this worthy cause."
