Celebrating the launch of the Poetry from the Platform Anthology
We hosted a virtual launch of the Bolton Rail Community Partnership anthology on Thursday 15 April at 7.00 pm. There were readings of entries by category winners and judges. Contributors included Sam Johnson, University of Bolton and Prof Paul Salveson, who have been behind the creation of the new Community Rooms and Gallery at Bolton Station.
An edition of the magazine was produced in January, February, March and April
Following on the success of last year’s 'Cotton, Culture and Characters', we launched the second of our free online series of historically themed guided walks in March.
'Edwardian Bolton: Drinkers, Swindlers, Hangmen and Suffragettes' brings to life the history of Bolton Town Centre, starting and ending in Churchgate, a vibrant promenade in 1901 crammed with pubs, theatres and laughter.
