A community cohesion event is back this year bringing together the people of Bolton.

Taking place at the Toughsheet Community Stadium, the fun-filled event for families will see stallholders with all kinds of things to bring about a community day for the Unity Festival of the year.

A spokesman for BWItC said: "Bolton Wanderers in the Community are delighted to be delivering the Bolton Unity Festival for the third year in a row.

"The event is always busy, with over 40 stallholders from the VCSE sector present on the day to showcase their organisation and meet the community.

"We’re also delighted to have plenty of activities delivered by different groups, such as Bolton Council’s Youth Service and Bolton at Home."

Performances will take place throughout the day on the stage and will include performances from the Shamrock School of Irish Dance and Tucum Capoeira Manchester, as well as parades around the Stadium on the hour, led by the Bolton Caledonia Pipe Band.

This is a key event in BWitC’s calendar, and this year supports their ongoing cohesion work in partnership with Bolton Solidarity Community Association and other key VCSE organisations across the town.

The aim of the event is to bring together people from all communities and backgrounds, to celebrate the rich diversity of Bolton.

The event takes place ahead of the BWFC v Reading fixture on Monday, April 1 and runs from 11am until kick-off at 3pm – but people don’t need a match ticket to enter.

The event is in the Premier Suite, opposite the Club Shop and Ticket Office, and everyone is welcome.

BWitC are also running their second annual BWFC Iftar event on Tuesday 2nd April, which is now fully booked with over 160 people due to attend.

The event runs every year and stalls will offer things like gifts from independent businesses, as well as food and drink, dances and performances to enjoy, games and activities and a parade.
