    Join us in the Bolton History Centre between Saturday 18 November and Saturday 25 November (except Sunday 19 November) and delve into Bolton’s past through a selection of our archive and local studies collections. Each day, from 2pm to 3pm, we will either open up a story box on a variety of different subjects or showcase specific collections which are useful resources for family, local or social historians. The collections on display will illustrate Bolton’s heritage through photographs, diaries, letters, minute books, newspapers, posters and architectural drawings. Suitable for people aged 12+. More details on the left hand side.
