The Bolton - Bridgeman Connection • Bolton Parish Church 17-28 June 2017

Bolton Arts Forum has given a grant to Bolton Documentary Photography to produce an exhibition about the role of the Earls of Bradford in the development of Bolton.

The exhibition will be on display at Bolton Parish Church between 17 and 28 June before it makes another appearance at Weston Park gallery in Shropshire during most of September.

The formal opening in Bolton Parish Church will be by the Mayor of Bolton and the Bishop of Bolton at 2.00pm on Thursday 22 June, when the children of Bishop Bridgeman Primary School will also be there giving a short performance and then viewing their own artwork which is also incorporated into the exhibition.

The event is open to all, so just turn up! We look forward to seeing you there.
