Octagon Theatre

A programme from the musical/play Eight Miles High written by Bolton's own Jim Cartwright.

The show centred on the fictional Lancashire "Clough Hall Music Festival", complete with site map on the inside cover. Set in 68/69 with musical covers from the era.

An earlier Cartwright play at the Octagon had starred John Cooper Clarke.

I'm guessing 92.

“Fascinating stuff.”
“Back in 1971 / 72 the Octagon used to host Saturday morning "Bluesology" sessions. Mostly local bands, but Warm Dust - featuring Paul Carrack - played one of the sessions.”
