We'll be celebrating International Women's Day on Monday 9th March as each show will be presented by women living or working in the borough. There will be 'No Boys Aloud'-(sic).

Once again, Bolton FM's Vicky Hawksworth is our 'station voice' for the day.

Bolton FM Breakfast will be brought to you by Lisa Forshaw who will be taking a quick break from organising the Bolton Fashion Festival which takes place on March 27th to help get you ready for the day from 7am. Mid-mornings from 9am to 11am will be presented by retired educator and businesswoman Pat Dickson while Dawn Lythgoe, Trustee of Fresh as a Daisy Bolton, will present This is Bolton from 11am until 1pm.
