Bolton’s museum and library has gone the extra mile to provide a spooky Halloween for all this half term.

The attraction has undergone a makeover and is encouraging all the family to visit.

There will be “spooktacular characters” to meet and “new spooky trails for you to join in time for Halloween” running up until this Saturday.

Limited numbers, hand sanitizer stations, NHS track and trace, and visitor face coverings are in place to ensure a safe visit.

The library is also encouraging families to visit Hall i’ th’ Wood Museum and Smithills Hall over the break.
