There is something for everyone at the Bolton Albert Halls this month, from music and comedy to family events and sport stars.
A host of musical entertainment will take to the stage throughout the month, beginning on Tuesday, November 16 with the 80s glitz, glamour and single glove of Who’s Bad, the ultimate Michael Jackson band with over three decades of chart topping music up their sleeves.
The high class tributes continue as Back for Good appear on Saturday, November 20. As Take That have just launched their new tour, the night will get you in the mood by recreating hits such as Relight My Fire, Never Forget, Patience and many more.
The Stylistics come to the halls the following night, performing the hits that turned them into one of the greatest soul bands of all time, such as You’re A Big Girl Now and You Make Me Feel Brand new.
The crowd will be saying Yes to Rick Wakeman on Monday November 22 when the legendary rock pianist takes to the stage in a show with as many ludicrous and funny anecdotes as it has big songs.
Away from music, one of the undisputed biggest names of the comedy circuit is appearing at the halls, as Julian Clary arrives with his Lord of the Mince tour on Thursday November 18. The comedian describes the show as “an intimate evening – a celebration, no less, of my twenty-five years in the camp spotlight: how I got there and why I refuse to leave.”
There’s something for all the family to enjoy on Sunday November 14, as the enchanting ballet Swan Lake is performed to some of the most well-loved classical music of all time.
Two giants of the world of sports commentary are gracing the halls this month, starting with Peter Alliss, former professional golfer, and the BBC’s voice of golf since the Open Championship of 1961 at Birkdale. Peter is noted for his knowledge of the game, wit and irreverent humour, and is bound to score a hole-in-one with the Albert Halls crowd.
The following Wednesday, November 24, sees Henry Blofeld, cricket’s most distinctive commentator, take to the stage. Laughter and a touch of wickedness are never far away when Blowers is at the Test Match microphone. His stories of a lifetime of cricket watching will keep the audience laughing all evening, and for the last half hour of his show he offers to answer questions from the audience on any subject under the sun.
Book tickets for any of these shows by logging onto the Bolton Albert Halls website or telephoning the Box Office.
