Jeremy Corbyn plays guitar during Bolton visit
The Labour leader plays guitar and ping pong as he visits Bolton to announce plans to rejuvenate the British high street. Under Labour's plan, local councils will be able to take over abandoned shops over to start-ups and community projects. Mr Corbyn said he was impressed by what he saw in Bolton, and added that a community project in a shopping centre is a "two-way street". He said: "Yes it does provide a space for the charity to operate from, the music charity for example is doing well, but it brings more people in who are then going to other places." Mr Corbyn strapped on a Tokai electric guitar at the Trust Music studio, a charity where people can drop in and learn how to play a musical instrument or sing in choir. Local charity band Rock of Ages perform weekly at Trust Music and they were happy to take a request from Mr Corbyn to play a rendition of Queen's Crazy Little Thing Called Love. Mr Corbyn was less in his comfort zone when playing table tennis at the ping pong parlour, an initiative by Table Tennis England where the public can hone their skills at the sport. He told the PA news agency of his match with former Bolton West MP Julie Hilling: "I'm not a ping pong player at all. We have just produced for you the worst ever exhibition match of ping pong that ever was."
