The Bolton Food and Drink festival isn't too far away and Bolton FM has a lot on its plate as it were. 

Posted on Thursday 16 August 2018 by James Pilkington

We're rebranding for the Food and Drink Festival to "Bolton FM your Festival Radio". Paul Davies Kitchens and Appliances will be supporting us throughout the Food and Drink Festival. 

We'll be bringing you interviews from the Festival's main chefs - Michael Caines, Nadiya Hussain, Ainsley Harriott, James Martin; as well as Aiden Byrne, Andrew Nutter and the Little Diamond Theatre Company. 

As in previous years we'll be sending out street teams to all the events and finding out how much you're enjoying the festival. 

You may spot us on Victoria Square; in Le Mans, on Deansgate, on Knowsley Street or in the Market Place, Bolton Market or Crompton Place. If you see us come and say "Hello" and you could be on-air and broadcasting across the town. On the Saturday evening of the Food and Drink Festival Kev Gurney's Club Tropicana will be live from the Market Place from 6pm. 

Bolton FM Festival Radio starts at 6am on Friday 24th August with the "Power Hour with Lee Bower" and runs through the Bank Holiday Weekend finishing wuth the "Triple A Rock Show with Andrew and Alan". We'll be bringing you all the interviews from the Food and Drink Festival and a regular Festival What's On Guide letting you know what's on and where. 

If there's one event Boltonians love as much as, if not more than Christmas, it has to be The Bolton Food and Drink Festival, and this year promises to be even BIGGER and BETTER than ever before!
