A trio of Tanzanian acrobats will perform for shoppers in Bolton town centre this Saturday (April 16).

The Black Eagles will put on a free breathtaking show of acrobatics and dancing skills to African music in Victoria Square.

The group is originally from Tanzania in East Africa, and they learned their acrobatic skills at the age of six on the streets of the capital city, Dar es Salaam.

The Black Eagles have made appearances in events across the UK including the Glastonbury Festival and have appeared in Bolton before.

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

And the show is the last in the latest round of free town centre events which have been organised by Bolton Council for the enjoyment of all the family.

Bolton Council’s Executive Member for Development and Regeneration Councillor Ismail Ibrahim said: “We’re thrilled to welcome the Black Eagles back to Bolton. On their last two visits the audience loved the free shows and we hope this is the case again.

“Although this is the last of our weekly town centre events, we’ve got lots coming up in the next few months for people to enjoy from huge international sporting events like Ironman to our hugely successful Food and Drink Festival.”

The group will be performing at noon and 1.30pm. Each show lasts 25 minutes.
