The crowd flock to see Fireman Sam

First published in News

HUNDREDS of children from across Greater Manchester gathered in Bolton for an audience with Fireman Sam.

Last weekend, the Market Place Shopping Centre in Bolton hosted a story-time event in the centre’s main mall, attracting visitors from across the region.

Fireman Sam read stories at intervals throughout and met delighted fans.

Nikki Wilson-Cooke, centre manager, said: “It was great to welcome Fireman Sam and seeing so many little ones meeting him made everyone happy.

“Events like this showcase our centre as a space for people of all ages. The redevelopment of Market Place’s Vaults and the addition of a cinema will only add to the potential of the centre.”

I was there last week and was watching this from the Market Place balcony. Honestly it was so depressing. It was dull, soulless and contrived. Just a bloke in a (sweltering) costume with absolutely no other props whatsoever. What made people queue up was beyond me. When they were dismantling everything at the end the people in charge had absolutely no enthusiasm. You don't expect them to in all fairness. They were probably thinking to the next time they have to do this crummy gig as they halfheartedly ripped off the gaffer tape.
