calendarThe Live from Worktown Calendar 2018

This year’s calendar is an integral part of Live from Worktown’s Bill Naughton Season. The images are by revered local photographer, the late Geoff Davies, chosen by Betty Davies and Ray Jefferson. They reflect the legacy of Bolton’s industrial past and capture both the loss of past certainties and the pain of change, but there's also the warmth and creativity of the people who live in this rickety, but proud old town. £9.99 from WHSmith’s or Waterstone’s or Click Here to purchase online £6 plus p&p .





This programme has been developed in association with the Heritage Lottery Fund with the active involvement of many local organisations including: the University of Bolton, the Octagon Theatre, Bolton Council, Bolton at Home, Libraries and Museums Service, Bolton Little Theatre, All Souls Community Centre, SS Peter and Paul's RC Primary School, Halliwell History Society, Bolton Amateur Theatre Society, and Bolton Arts Forum.
