He is also a keen railway enthusiast and is the owner of significant collections of historic locomotives and rolling stock.

Phil Wood, of The Rotary Club Westhoughton, said: “Pete will be talking about his life as a music promoter and some of the audience hope he will be talking about his interest in railways as well.
