Desert Island Discs with Boff Whalley
Former Chumbawamba front man Boff Whalley reveals the music that informed his politics and shaped his outlook on life. Julia Simpkins asks the question and cues the tracks.
As Boff describes it…
I’m at the fantastic Bolton Socialist Club doing a sort of Desert Island Discs thing. From West Side Story via the Pistols and Swan Arcade to Beans on Toast. That may not make much sense to you. I don’t know if I’m singing and playing anything there or just talking and telling jokes.
8.00pm at Bolton Socialist Club, Wood Street, Bolton

Wonder Women: Ladyfest MCR: Putting Women Up Front
This year Ladyfest hosts a specially created event for Wonder Women, exploring themes on visibility, body politics and identity in the context of the modern music industry.
This one-day event aims to encourage women to get involved in the music industry through practical sound production and music business workshops, plus an interactive lab from pioneers developing access for disabled musicians and promoters.
There’s a chance to hear Caro C – co-founder of Delia Derbyshire Day – deliver her talk ‘Visibility is Key’ on women in tech and electronic music. The musical programme rounds off with a panel discussion from key female figures in the music industry.
Wrapping up the day is the local body positive campaign ‘Free to be OK with Me’ – with workshops to encourage acceptance of our own bodies whatever their shape and with activist art shining a light on key body image issues.
13:00 Practical and interactive workshops
15:00 Caro C – Visibily is Key
15:30 Q&A Panel – Moderated by Abigail Ward
17:30 Body Positive Campaign – Free to be OK with me
