WIN Piaf Octagon Theatre, Bolton tickets

WIN one pair of tickets to see Elizabeth Newman's's production of Piaf at the Bolton Octagon Theatre.



French singer and cultural icon Edith Piaf is celebrated in this powerful musical drama following her rise from the streets of Paris to the international stage.

The life and career of Piaf is as unique as her distinctive singing style. Raised in a brothel by her grandmother whilst her parents worked as performers, Piaf sang in public for the first time in 1929, aged 14, when she joined her father in his acrobatic street shows. The years that followed were spent as a street singer and it was in 1935 that she was discovered by a nightclub owner, starting her career in an exclusive club off the Champs-Elysees.

Written by Pam Gems and directed by Elizabeth Newman.
