There is always so much going on around Bolton during the week. Here's five things you can check out.

Egyptian tomb talk

EXPLORE Egyptology with guest speakers at the Bolton Library and Museum.

Dr Campbell Price, curator of Egypt and the Sudan at The Manchester Museum, will be talking about ‘Unwrapping the Two Brothers: Mummies, Manchester and Misrepresentation.’

One of the collection’s star attractions is the intact tomb group of Khnum-nakht and Nakht-ankh.

Coffin inscriptions identify the men as sons of the same woman, Khnum-aa, giving them their popular name: the Two Brothers.

Dr Price will discuss further investigations into the mummies and how they were transported to Manchester.

The talk will take place from 7pm-8pm on Thursday.

Tickets start from £5 and can be purchased on Eventbrite.
