PATRONS at a town centre bar took a trip back to the 1920s to raise money for an important cause.

Hogarths, in Churchgate, was briefly transformed into the set of hit TV show Peaky Blinders, with staff and attendees dressing up in the style of the Birmingham-based programme.

The festivities were in aid of Bolton Deaf Society, with as many as 500 people visiting the bar during on Saturday night.

The venue was decked out in the style of the times, with a vintage car parked outside and banners with the moniker Old Tom's Gin Palace.

Hogarths manager Chantelle Barlow, said she was very pleased by the event.

She said: "It went really well, it was a great turnout.

"We know a guy that has a painting company who helped with the banners and my grandad's friend drives old cars and he said we could used that one for the night.

"We have done other charity nights before, for breast cancer and Bolton Hospice, but this one was such a good turnout that we are going to try and do more in the future."
