I WAS lucky enough to be present at Bolton’s Got Talent at the Macron Stadium for a really enjoyable evening.

It was not only a chance to appreciate the breadth of real talent that this town can offer (and that was just a fraction out of the scores of acts that applied) but also an opportunity to see comedian Peter Kay in action as the compere.

He was engaging, fun, witty and lovely with all the amateur entertainers.

He made the evening special for everyone, watching or taking part, and it’s no wonder his latest shows are a complete sell-out.
