Let’s start, though, with Bolton’s standing as the home of England’s only full-distance Ironman – that’s a 2.4-mile swim at Pennington Flash, followed by a 112-mile bike ride and finishing, almost unbelievably, with a full marathon that ends in the town’s Victoria Square.
This gruelling event is amazing to spectate, with athletes battling it out along streets through the town centre. Less punishing, but no less ambitious, is the annual Bolton Food and Drink festival, one of the UK’s biggest. Winner of multiple awards, this four-day celebration features hundreds of artisan stalls, bars, cooking demos, masterclasses, live music, and family entertainment, with the likes of James Martin, Michael Caines and The Hairy Bikers all making an appearance in previous years.
The Bolton Octagon, which reopened in May 2021 after closing for a £12million redevelopment in August 2018, is another of the town’s key cultural players. Completely reimagined, the theatre has undergone a full modernisation, with updated performance spaces and brand-new facilities. The first professional theatre to be built in the North West of England after the Second World War, Bolton Octagon is now a national contender, with a bold and popular programme.
