A place to gather together...

Bolton Town Hall serves particularly well as a spectacular backdrop to major events.

The Proclamation of a new Monarch's accession to the throne is traditionally read out from the Town Hall steps.

The building has been lavishly decorated many times to celebrate Royal visits, Coronations and Jubilees, Christmases and festivals.

It has also been at the heart of fund-raising events during two World Wars and celebrated the return of peacetime.

The Town Hall and Cenotaph continue to play a central role in our annual Remembrance ceremonies, honouring the sacrifices that Bolton servicemen and women have made in Wartime and beyond.
