PETER Rabbit celebrates his 100th birthday this year and the Bolton National Trust Association is holding a lecture in his honour on Thursday (Oct 24) at 7.30pm at Bolton School Arts and Conference Centre.

Tales of the cheeky rabbit were first published in 1902 and the National Trust received land in the Lake District from Peter's creator, Beatrix Potter.

Bolton Association members pay £2 admission. Non-members pay £3.
