The venue for gig in the evening has had to changed. It's now at the Cattle Market Hotel, 6-8 Orlando Street, Bolton, BL3 6BH Same time, same bands, same attitude.

The Socialist Club suddenly decided against the gig. The Bookfair is unchanged.

I was only there a short while due to evening commitments. I think Manchester SF will be writing a short report. It was a good day I think and the gig was a huge success, packed out.

Also Bolton got a point at Chelsea, Arsenal were held at home, for us Mancs United and the massives both won, Liverpool lost and for our drummer Burnley won away! grin

Yeah, a really good effort - well done SolFed. Nice venue and got to meet people we'd not otherwise have met. And of course, Oldham somehow won too - so really a good day!
