20th Century Vox: Bolton

This was a two year project organised by volunteers from a range of community groups funded by The Local Heritage Initiative (LHI)  a small grants programme launched in 2000 to help communities bring their local heritage to life.  It produced a social history of Bolton in the 20th century. 

The main activity of the project was oral history with some video and photography. It resulted in the following:

  • exhibitions;
  • a local history booklet;
  • a community drama;
  • a local radio documentary;
  • an education pack;
  • a website;
  • a CD-ROM.

The CD- ROM is available through the Bolton Worktown Collection
