The 25th Annual Remembrance Concert will take place on Saturday 9th November commencing at 7pm in the Albert Halls, Bolton.
The concert will feature acts from the Dawson’s Academy of Stage and Dance and the CATS Youth Theatre, as well as demonstrations from our local cadet services, flag displays, community singing and the magnificent fall of the poppies
It will finish promptly at 9.40pm to allow guests to book transport or catch the last buses home. There are still tickets available (£7.50 each). This concert gives residents the opportunity to support local service and cadet organisations and join together for an evening of remembrance and song.
Councillor Colin Shaw, Mayor of Bolton said: “I am very proud to be Mayor at this important time of year when our town joins together to remember those who have paid the ultimate price, and all those affected both physically and emotionally by conflicts around the world. I would like to extend an invitation to all the citizens of the borough to join me for these important events.”
