A tightrope walker who studied in the world famous Cirque du Soleil will entertain shoppers in Bolton on Saturday (May 15).
Bernie Bennett will blend heart-stopping tightrope skills with a comedy show on a ten foot high rig in Victoria Square.
The free event is the latest show being laid on by Bolton Council to draw shoppers into town.
Performances are at 12pm and 1.30pm and last 30 minutes.
Councillor John Byrne, Bolton Council’s Executive Member for Development and Regeneration, said: “Bernie has appeared in festivals all over the world and his show should be a real crowd-pleaser.”
An adult learners’ week event and RSPCA show will also take place on Victoria Square.
