Bolton Food and Drink Festival 2012 Line Up

Bolton Food and Drink Festival 2012 Line Up
It's nearly time! Tomorrow is the first day of the Bolton Food and Drink Festival 2012. The Met Office assure me that the weather forecast is good up until about 4pm, so that's plenty of time to look around and buy some goodies before getting wet! I can't promise that I won't look like Crystal Tips if you bump into me as my hair is not a friend of humidity...
