Bolton’s fun-filled half term 


Young people across Bolton can enjoy a fun-filled half term this February with an array of indoor and outdoor activities.

Those under 13 years old have the opportunity to go and express their music, acting and artistic skills with organised activities, while local sports trips will also take place throughout the week.

Any 13 to 19 year-olds can enjoy day trips and residential visits or take part in energetic activities such as football, wrestling and boxing, as well as trying their hand at DJing.

The council’s three mobile boxes will be appearing again over the February half term offering young people a general meeting area in Box One; music, arts and crafts in Box Two; and street soccer in Box Three.

Alternatively, young people can pop down to their local play or youth centres or one of the 14 Bolton Community Leisure Trust centres and seven pools across Bolton. Swimming is completely free of charge for everyone aged 16 and under, visit the Freebie website via the link on the right hand side for full details as a BSmart card is required.

Meanwhile, for anyone looking to catch up on homework over the break, Bolton’s 15 libraries offer a perfect environment. There are thousands of novels, encyclopaedias, and art and music dictionaries to choose from, as well as in-depth archives and free internet access.

Councillor Ebrahim Adia, Bolton Council’s Executive Member for Children’s Services, said: “With so many activities on offer across the borough this half term, there’s no excuse for being bored. I would urge all of Bolton’s young people to look into some of the sporting, artistic, musical and educational opportunities available to them.”
