I was really lucky to have the opportunity to have a tour of the underground vaults at Bolton Market Place today. The Market Place was bought by Moorgarth in 2013 whose major shareholder is South African Retail tycoon Christo Wiese. When Christo came to Bolton and saw the vaults under the Market Place he could immediately see the potential and put his money where his mouth was and is now investing £15m in a new nine screen cinema and updating the vaults to create some very atmospheric restaurant space.
