Three fitness instructors will be putting shoppers through their paces in Bolton on Saturday (January 15).

Dressed in brightly coloured lycra, Jumping Jeff, Bouncing Bunny and Low-Impact Lydia, will be in Victoria Square encouraging members of the public to join in their special brand of fitness-fun.

The comedy instructors mark the launch of a new round of town centre events.

Following the success of Saturday entertainment over the last two years, Bolton Council has organised a variety of acts over the next few months to encourage more visitors to the town.

Shoppers will be delighted to see the return of popular acts Titan the Robot, a six-foot walking, talking robot, and the Black Eagles, a trio of Tanzanian acrobats, who put on a breathtaking show of acrobatics and dancing skills to African music.

There is also a host of new acts for 2011, including: Bang On, a percussion duo who create funky beats using a huge homemade drum kit; Musical Ruth, a madcap nun who drives around with a mobile piano; and Stickleback Plasticus, a doubleact who will have the audience in stitches with their First Aid attempts.

Councillor Ismail Ibrahim, Bolton Council’s Executive member for Development and Regeneration, said: “We have a great line-up of entertainment planned for the next few months.

“"We want to do everything we can to support retailers in the challenging post-Christmas period and are hoping the free entertainment will help to boost town centre footfall and trade."

“Our previous events have been really well received and enjoyed by visitors to the town centre so we have decided to book some of the more popular ones again and try out some new acts. I hope everyone enjoys them once again.”

The trio of instructors will perform in and around Victoria Square on Saturday, January 15 at noon, 1pm and 2pm. In the event of heavy rain, the group will perform in the Market Place shopping centre.
