We went along to sample the mulled wine in the Festive Teepee in Victoria Square, followed by a live performance from Ray in the ever-popular Ice Rink.

With everything the Winter Festival has to offer just a 60-second walk from our apartments, we’re sure plenty of our guests will enjoy this year’s festivities and a skate on the ice.


Bolton Christmas Lights Switch On

Local Boltonian, star of The Chase and X Factor Celebrity contestant Jenny Ryan wasn’t the only bright spark in the town last night as she switched on the Bolton Christmas Lights.

There was a great turn out in a packed Victoria Square, overlooked by the beautiful Bolton Town Hall, to watch the annual Christmas Lights switch on. We had a great time and we know many of our guests did too.

It was especially great to see Jenny Ryan showcase her vocal talent before switching on the lights and prompting a huge fireworks display from the rooftop of the town hall.

It was a clear and suitably chilly night in Bolton, luckily our Suites and office are located just a couple of minutes walk from the square, so we didn’t have to endure the festively low temperature for too long!


Bolton Film Festival – Lights, Camera, Accommodation!

We were delighted to see the Bolton Film Festival return to the town centre once again. Now in its third year, the festival has grown from strength to strength, with film entries growing from 350 in the first year, to a massive 1,200 this time around.

The festival continues to be a popular attraction both for people in the town and further afield. The festival director, Adrian Barber, commented “Across each of our five venues it has been a huge success to the point that a main problem was worrying about how we were going to seat people.”

We were thrilled to host an array of talented guests attending the festival, held at The Light cinema, just a stone’s throw away from our apartments.

We can’t wait for the Bolton Film Festival 2020, all signs are pointing towards it being the biggest and best yet!
