An Alternative List
1. Go for a pint in any of the pubs on Bradshawgate, you will see Bolton,s finest drunks, do it before midday as after that they are incoherent.
2. Take a walk down Newport St, see the eastern European families massed together spitting on the floor and shouting loudly at each other.
3 Buy yourself something tacky from one of the numerous pound shops in our thriving town centre.
4 Spend a day in one of the courts, watch the same people get fined for the same thing and still walk away laughing.
5 See how many traffic wardens you spot in the town centre, the winner gets a three course dinner at the Michelin star rated Subway.

And more seriously join a couple of other thousand people to see Thomas the Tank Engine appear all weekend at the East Lancashire Railway in Bury. Great fun for all the family especially for children with a passion for Thomas. All activities under cover and several train rides included in the ticket along with 14 different entertainment activities.
