A Bolton theatre has raised the curtain on a new website which shines a spotlight on the famous historic halls.

The Albert Halls is at the heart of cultural life in Bolton and regularly attracts some of the biggest names in entertainment.

It now has a website offering people the chance to access services easier.

The venue has played host to concerts, shows and exhibitions for more than 100 years.

And the programme of events is now easier to access now more than ever, thanks to the new website which showcases everything the Albert Halls has to offer.

Fully optimised for tablet and mobile, the site allows users to buy tickets, view upcoming shows and get the latest updates from the popular Albert Bar and Café.

The website also gives people the chance to hire the venue for a wedding or any other event.

The new site is part of the council’s wider plan to boost footfall and position the Albert Halls as a leading cultural venue in Greater Manchester.

Bolton Council’s Executive Cabinet Member for Culture, Cllr Nadeem Ayub, said:

“The Albert Halls has been Bolton’s cultural hub for more than 100 years, entertaining residents and bringing in visitors from across the country.

"We have entertainment for everyone from the Cinderella Pantomine, Classic Marti Pellow, comedy, psychics, popular ‘The Making of the Murder’ show and celebrity DJ Martin Kemp. 

“Today, the competition for audiences is fiercer than ever, but this new website will allow us to stand out, find new customers, and make buying tickets to our incredible shows even easier.

“If you’ve never been to the Albert Halls, or it has been a while since your last visit, then check our new website to find out what you’re missing.”
