Dragons’ Den Star Hilary Devey returns to Holt’s Railway Hotel to film BBC documentaryMANCHESTER – The newest member of the hit TV series Dragons’ Den paid a visit last month to our very own Railway pub in Farnworth last month.
Joseph Holt was contacted by BBC to take part in a special one-off programme, which focussed on Ms Devey’s life in Bolton throughout the 1960s and 1970s. Aired on the 29th December 2011, The Dragons’ Den: Hilary Devey Story, showed Ms Devey visiting Ruby Street, in Bolton, Tonge Ward Social Club and Joseph Holt pub the Railway, in Farnworth, which Hilary Devey’s parents once managed.
Viewers saw Hilary Devey return to the Railway to reminisce with her cousin, Janet Taylor, about the time she spent at the pub when she was a child. She mentions how much experience and business acumen she gained from helping her parents at the Railway and even helps pub manager Anne Fallows to pull a pint!
Following a tour of the pub and a few spooky stories, Hilary moves on to discuss her life in Leicester and how she came to build her worldwide empire.
A BBC spokesman said: “Hilary brought a unique style and a whole new language into the Den, which was the most popular series so far. This insightful documentary charts her business career and explains how and why she achieved the success that she has”.
