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

We have 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.

We work with North West Vision and Media and act as a one-stop-shop for location managers, arranging road closures, parking suspensions, police assistance, location release consent, and any other requirements.

Please notify us before filming or taking photographs in Bolton.

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