Organizers hoping Bolton Food and Drink Festival will attract record numbers

The eighth Bolton Food and Drink Festival will be happening on the August bank holiday weekend. The Manchester’s KRO bar and Beer Keller pop up venues are to make a welcome to return to the festival as they attracted a total of 102,000 people at last year’s event.

The Beer Keller will be open in Victoria Square while the Danish KRO bar will be in Deansgate, with both venues open from 11am every day and both will be host to live performances by some of the best Bolton bands.

The Beer Keller is owned and run by German born Arnd Baggan. In an interview he said that he was and still is, very happy to be a part of the Bolton Festival. He went on to say that he really enjoys the festival and he considers the event a very important part of his life.

Baggan is looking forward to serving more and more customers in his beer garden which is large enough to accommodate up to 400 people situated alongside Costa Coffee off Victoria Square.

On the other hand, the KRO bar is run by Borge Ruby, who is a native of Denmark. The leader of Bolton Council, Councilor Cliff Morris said that they are very glad that the two bars decided to again take part of the phenomenal festival.

In addition to this he said that the addition of live music will definitely attract more and more people to join the festival. Because of the collaborative effort of the festival organizers, there is no doubt that the Bolton Food and Drink Festival will become a world famous event.

The number of visitors who joined the festival last year beats all previous records and the festival organizers aim to beat the record once again. This year’s festival will feature some well known household names such as Aldo Zilli, James Martin of Saturday Kitchen, and Great British Bake Off judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry.
