It has lots to offer: beautiful countryside close to the West Pennine Moors, historic buildings, The Octagon Theatre, Albert Halls Bolton, countryside parks, and a world-class museum and art gallery that includes an Egyptology gallery.
Among the borough’s cultural events is Bolton Food and Drink Festival which features celebrity chefs such as James Martin, Ainsley Harriot and The Hairy Bikers. The IRONMAN UK triathlon attracts competitors from around the world and Ironkids is the world’s largest fun run.
Samuel Crompton of Bolton invented the famous spinning mule, a machine to spin cotton, in 1799. Other famous Boltonians include steeplejack Fred Dibnah, Olympian Jason Kenny, comedian Peter Kay, presenters Vernon Kay and Sara Cox, and footballer Alan Ball who was the youngest member of the England 1966 World Cup-winning team.
Bolton has a long history of working in partnership to integrate health and social care services with the shared aim of improving the health and wellbeing of all residents.
Developments include the creation of the Bolton Health and Care Partnership which has brought teams closer together to deliver and to plan and buy health and care services.
It’s more important than ever to build on these developments and ensure everyone has equal access to the the activities and support that will help them to lead a healthier life for longer, no matter where they live in the borough.
