Bolton News reader’s letter: Support from Food and Drink Festival crowd was amazing

by Deb Lyons

HAVING conducted Eagley Band at the superb Bolton Food Festival on Sunday afternoon, may I thank the many hundreds of listeners to our performance on the Le Mans Crescent stage who gave every piece that we played a rapturous ovation, making the band and myself feel so very welcome.

The massive audience particularly enthused about our major items such as Sinatra, Genesis, Toto and Wicked, all of which we are to perform indoors in the Mayor’s Charity Gala Concert in the fantastic acoustics of the Victoria Hall on Saturday, October 14, at 7.30pm.

We hope everyone at the Food Festival will come and support Eagley and Smithills once again that evening and take the opportunity to enjoy a great night with us in the town centre.

Thank you again to everyone who watched, applauded, cheered and stood up in huge numbers throughout our concert on Sunday as literally every available seat was taken and the crescent completely packed.

Eagley Band @Bolton Food & Drink Festival

This year is Bolton’s 12th food and drink festival and it promised to be even more magical with a bank holiday weekend of food, drink, fun, family entertainment and live music. Voted the best Food Market by the National Association of British Market Authorities, the festival attracted over 263,000 visitors last year, we were really pleased to be asked for the first time to take part providing a slot on the main stage at Bolton Food & Drink Festival

There was a large audience relaxing with an odd tipple and a bite to eat, enjoying the sun shine as they listened to a varied program, music from Brassed Off featuring Janet Walsh playing the famous flugel horn solo Concierto de Aranjuez, other pieces included TOTO, Genesis and to finish a touch of Sinatra.

Thanks to Daniel Tayler for taking some fab photos, capturing us in action.
