Bolton Christmas Festival


Our Christmas Festival wouldn’t be what it is without the support of some fantastic organisations and businesses.


The Bolton Gin Company was started by friends with a mission to bring amazing flavours across the town. Things quickly grew as the UK discovered Bolton Best kept secret. We now supply bars shops and clubs up and down the land, but our principles haven’t changed. We are proud to support and promote Bolton at every opportunity. We employ local we buy local, and we won’t change that.
We are proud to be supporting Bolton Council Markets as well as BWFC and charities in the town.
Bolton is an amazing community and people have taken us to their hearts, we are so grateful for the amazing comments we receive and it’s a pleasure to continue our crazy journey to make sure we continue to help making Bolton a place to be proud of.
