A GLOBAL star is set to take the lead as jazz returns to a town centre fish and chip shop.

Bolton’s Olympus Fish and Chip shop will host international pianist and singer, Jeremy Sassoon, this Sunday.

Mr Sassoon will perform as part of a quartet, joined by celebrated trumpet player Neil Yates, bassist Nicola Farnon, and drummer Phil Johnson.

Dave Morgan, event organiser, said: “I’m very excited to see Jeremy Sassoon, who I’ve seen a few times across the North West.

“He’s got a very good repertoire that people will know, and people will love hearing.”

The event will be the third of its kind hosted by the Live from Worktown organisation at the Olympus restaurant, in Great Moor Street.

Previous events have seen acts such as the Alan Taylor Quartet and Latin band Cuba Vida take to the stage.

In partnership with the fish and chip shop, Live from the Worktown are determined to bring more culture to Bolton.

Mr Morgan said: “Town centres have had a bad ride the last few years, and we’re trying to revive it with some world class entertainment in an accessible way.

“The two events we have had there already have been extremely successful.”

Based in Bolton’s town centre, the event will have jazz from the four musicians, and then fresh pasties to end the night.

Doors open at 7pm, and tickets will cost £8 in advance, or £10 on the door.

They can be purchased either directly from the Olympus restaurant or from www.livefromworktown.org.
