The Nohow Story
Nohow was formed in 1989 by Don and Nora Howcroft to perform a one-off show at the Albert Halls in Bolton to raise funds for the then soon to be built Bolton Hospice.
That show raised £2,000 and the decision was taken to continue performing with all profits donated to worthy causes. In 1992, Nohow was awarded a Bolton Evening News Silver Award for their work raising money for Bolton Hospice.
As well as an annual Christmas concert, Nohow have presented the world amateur premier of "The Baker's Wife", plus "A Little Night Music", "Red Hot And Cole", "Sing A Rude Song" (the Marie Lloyd Story) and the British amateur premier of "Nunsense".
The group has raised more than £100,000 over the past twenty eight years, donating the profits from their show to many charities throughout the country.
