Bruce Airhead makes a welcome return to Bolton

An explosive show will entertain shoppers in Bolton town centre this weekend.

Human balloon man Bruce Airhead has performed his show for audiences all over the world.

The Australian stuntman first came to Bolton two years ago when he stunned shoppers with a routine which sees him turn into a six-foot inflatable balloon.

Bruce uses a voice-activated vacuum cleaner to inflate the balloon before sliding inside it.

Following the success of town centre Saturday entertainment over the last two years, Bolton Council has organised a variety of free acts over the next few months to boost town centre footfall and trade.

Bruce Airhead is the latest in a long line of shows that the council has lined up to draw shoppers in to town.

He will perform two 30-minute shows at noon and 1.30pm in Victoria Square on Saturday, March 26.

Bolton Council’s Executive Member for Development and Regeneration, Councillor Ismail Ibrahim, said: “Bruce is the latest in a series of entertaining, free performances for the public to enjoy. The last time he was here the audience was blown away by his performance and I hope people come out to see him again.”
