Bring the Bolton Food and Drink Festival to your business!

food and drink

This year, Bolton's Food and Drink festival celebrates it's 18th birthday and everyone is invited.

After a record-breaking year in 2022, where over 460,000 visitors came into Bolton town centre over August , they want to ensure 2023 is bigger and better and offers something for the whole of the borough.   
Whilst core activity is staged in Bolton town centre over the Bank Holiday weekend they're keen to extend their plans and want to work with businesses across the borough. If you sell food or drink, or put on live entertainment and activities in your venue then they'd love for you to be ‘part of the Festival’. 
After trialling festival wristbands in 2022, they will once again be using them to support our marketing and promotional activity through August and into September, all aimed at encouraging residents and visitors to enjoy their local high street.  
Details of the wristbands are as follows:

  • Throughout August and September, they want to encourage visits to Bolton’s favourite spaces by giving residents access to unique festival-only offers.
  • Offers should be simple for you to manage, and for them to promote, and create a genuine benefit to customers. It’s up to you what you offer but along the lines of a free drink when ordering a main meal, 5% discount on specific days of the week or buy one get one free.
  • All participating businesses will receive festival branded window stickers and posters to display as well as inclusion in all supporting marketing and communications activity (on the festival website, on all our social media channels, on the Discover App and in press announcements as a minimum).   
  • Customers will buy a wrist band and will need to show it to the participating business to access the deals.
