Bolton is a film-friendly town and actively promotes itself as a filming destination.

The council has experience of working with film, television and photographic companies and of facilitating commercials, dramas, documentaries, news, feature films, and photo-shoots in and around the local area.

The council's Communications and Marketing Agency works with North West Vision and Media and acts as a one-stop-shop for location managers, arranging road closures, parking suspensions, police assistance, location release consent, and any other requirements.

Film, TV and photographic companies should always notify the council before filming or taking photographs in the borough.

Recent filming has included The Cup, Life on Mars, Shameless and All the small things.

Anyone wishing to film or photograph in Bolton, or wanting to know more, should contact the Communications and Marketing Agency using the details on the Contacts tab.
